Corporate retreat on a yacht charter? Here’s why you should do it!

Running out of novel ideas to host your companies’ corporate retreats? Here are some reasons why you should have your Corporate Retreat on a Yacht Charter!

Corporate Retreat on a Yacht Charter

Many people underestimate how motivating and inspiring a corporate retreat can be for a team or a company, and the various benefits that come from holding a corporate events. Moreover, having your corporate retreat on a yacht charter be a fun and surprising new event that can bring the whole team together in a new way!

Several of the Benefits of Corporate Retreat on a Yacht Charter include:

Interaction – One of the major benefits of corporate retreats is team building. People may work together for years in an organization, but as soon as they go on an offsite retreat in the sun and have fun, new and everlasting bonds are built. It is a known fact that people tend to be their true self when they are relieved from pressure. Corporate retreats help remove this pressure and let a person open up. Every employee of an organization is considered to be equal on an office retreat. There is no bias or preferences towards anyone. This makes a person feel important and he/she is easily able to get connected and interact with others.

Rewards – Corporate retreats are a good way to reward your employees. An informal announcement of a bonus or an incentive may come as a lovely surprise. Moreover, it will do wonders when the employees are already light headed and in a fun mood. On corporate retreats, management can show their gratitude and appreciation towards their employees through many recreational activities which may be followed with presents.

Goals and Objectives – During office hours, people are not as focused as they are on a retreat. They are their true self and can give great ideas. Moreover, due to bonding and relationships which are built on a retreat, people move in the same direction and start working to achieve the same goals and objectives. This is because after a retreat, not only business relationships but also personal feelings come into play while working in an office.


Here at the Epicurean State, we’ve come up with our own corporate events on a yacht, which we believe is an excellent way to reward employees, foster team building and improve relationships. Being on a yacht can be so much fun, and to many employees its a great way to spend a day. Being out on the ocean, under the sun, and far away from the office can do wonders for a person. It helps them to open up, and allows employees to share this experience forever.

Our corporate events on a yacht include activities specially curated by a professional HRD practitioner, which include various games and exercises specifically meant for bonding and team building.

Some of these activities include:

Hawaii Beach Races
Sandcastle Challenge
Lego Blocks Team Building
Eskimo Greetings
Jacob’s Ladder

Other activities can be personalized and catered to your needs.

A guide for yacht owners who are interested in renting out your yacht!

Have a yacht that you don’t use often? Want to earn some extra cash as well? Here is a guide for yacht owners who are interested in renting out your yacht!

Luxury yacht. Renting out your yacht.

Being a boat owner certainly has its own obvious perks, and renting out your yacht is definitely one of them! It is a great way to make sure that your yacht doesn’t spend too much time berthed or parked on land (especially if you don’t take it out very often), and it is also a great source of side income!

Important things to remember before renting out your yacht to the first person who responds to your ad:

1. Make sure you have the right insurance

Before putting out the advertisements for your yacht rental, you need to find out if chartering your yacht is covered under your boat owner’s and/or private boat property insurance policies. This depends on your insurance carrier. If your current insurance policy does not cover accepting payments for use of your yacht, you can purchase additional boat owner’s insurance from other providers. This is extremely important!

2. Check that your boat is seaworthy.

If you use your boat quite regularly, this shouldn’t be a problem. However, if you have been keeping your yacht in storage, and perhaps 5 years later, decided to earn some money by renting it out, you might want to check that it will still function properly while in the water. Send it in for maintenance, keep all records on hand, and make sure that it is clean!

3. Know who your renters are

Because most transactions are done through the Internet these days, it is vital to know who you are renting your boat to. A deposit is a good way to protect yourself. Meeting with the renter will definitely be the best option.

4. Rental Agreements

Make sure that your rental agreements cover all of the important facets of the transaction. This is to protect both yourself and your potential customers.

In Conclusion,

of course renting out a yacht can be a scary notion for a person, especially for a first timer, but yacht charter companies make this process smooth and easy! Here at The Epicurean State, we partner with many yacht owners who trusts us to take care of these transactions for them! If you’re interested in renting out your yacht but don’t know where to start, send us an email at and we’ll help you get started right away!
