The Best Yacht Charter in San Francisco – New Renovations!

As always, we wish to stay as the best yacht charter in business, so we’ve remodeled our yacht! We always do our best to keep our yachts looking amazing. To keep them looking that way, we carry out a lot maintenance. We want our guests to feel comfortable with their surroundings and to enjoy themselves to the full. 

To this end, we’ve put in all new wood flooring in the bathrooms, the captain’s wheelhouse, the bars, the dance floor and the stairway. Also, we’ve given our yacht side wall refinishing, as well as new trim all the way around the boat. The restrooms look vibrant and clean. 

Captain Gerry spends much of his time up in the Captain’s Wheelhouse. His job is to guide the guests safely to and from the docks to sea. He also likes to explain all the bells and whistles in the Wheelhouse to his visitors. As a result of that, we made sure the remodeling got to his Wheelhouse too.

Waves rippling gently against the side of the yacht, wind blowing lightly, sun shining are a recipe of happiness. Imagine yourself sitting and enjoying just that on our yacht. That is why we decided to put a new marble bar top with the name: Sky Bar.  From the position of this bar, you can see an amazing view of the ocean while drinking a relaxing glass of wine or a cocktail.

San Francisco Yacht Charters – Come Celebrate on the Bay!

San Francisco Bay CruiseA San Francisco Bay Cruise on a luxury yacht is a terrific choice for individuals interested in celebrating on the Bay. Such charters can be appropriated for numerous occasions. Below are a few ideas that would be appropriate for renting a yacht charter but these are by no means the only ones.

Birthday Parties:  What better way to celebrate growing one year older than on a luxury yacht? Not only is it an enjoyable way to do so, but it’s also unique.   A person who celebrates in this manner will be the talk of all of their friends and family. One of the coolest things about being able to charter a yacht is the ability to access one without actually purchasing it. Few people can afford yachts, especially a luxury one. Chartering makes it possible for a person to live like the rich and famous without being either. Anyone looking to impress their peers and have a good time should consider a San Francisco Bay Cruise.

Anniversaries: Anniversaries are another great occasion to charter a yacht. Spending a few hours on a yacht with one’s honey, celebrating life together, would be very memorable. It would also be quite special. Whether this is a surprise excursion or one planned by the couple, it would definitely be an occasion to remember.

Date Night: The occasion doesn’t have to be a special one to charter a yacht. It’s a terrific choice for date night. Couples tired of dinner and the movies may want to consider a more exciting option, with a chartered yacht being an underused option. Why not go big and make “date night” something to really remember.

Proposals: When it comes to proposals, it’s either “go big or go home.” A gentleman (or woman) who wants to impress his beloved when popping the big question, will need to think outside the box. A chartered yacht is one option that is sure to impress. If she says yes (or even if she doesn’t), it is almost guaranteed that she will enjoy reliving the moment and bragging to all her family and friends about it. A chartered boat on the San Francisco Bay
should definitely impress her (or him).

A San Francisco Bay Cruise: In Summary

There are numerous occasions where a San Francisco Bay Cruise on our luxury yachts would be an excellent choice. They include, but are not limited to the above, birthday parties, date night, anniversaries and proposals. Each of the aforementioned is ideal. Each offers an opportunity to celebrate life, love and happiness with one’s closet friends, lover or family members. This list is not exhaustive, as was mentioned above. There are many other occasions where a yacht charter might be the perfect setting.
