If you’re looking for a fun and unique way to ring in the New Year, than the Downtown New Year’s Eve Yacht Party might be the perfect event for you! Instead of starting your New Year off crammed into a bar, wouldn’t you like to do something truly unique, like celebrate on the largest mega yacht in the region, which is longer than a football field?
The yacht will be setting sail at 9 p.m. from the Grape Street Pier. You don’t have to worry about missing the boat, however, because the doors open at 8 p.m. to ensure time for boarding. You’ll receive a glass of champagne when you board, and you’ll be free to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and limitless drinks until midnight. The boat will return to the pier at roughly 12:30 a.m., at which time passengers will head home.
Enjoy a Fun and Festive Evening at Sea
So, what do you get other than a ride on massive boat? Well, there are 12 top shelf bars on this massive yacht, all of which are open to serve you. There are also three different levels of dancing with music spun by some of the best area DJs. When midnight hits, you’ll be on the rooftop deck with a free hat and a noisemaker, looking out at the illuminated skyline of the city.
You’ll certainly have every chance to dance, mingle and take advantage of their many open bars. You’ll find plenty of beer, wine and top shelf liquors flowing for all the guests. You will also find an interactive photo booth where you can capture whimsical memories of the evening.
Tickets are available for purchase online here. Tickets start at $169, plus a $9.85 fee, although patrons can pay an additional $40 to upgrade for early boarding to the Sky Deck. That $40 means an extra hour of access to the bar and the live entertainment on the yacht. It could offer you a chance to get familiar with the boat before it leaves the pier or just tuck in a few extra drinks.
If you do want to attend, be sure to buy your tickets early! This event has limited capacity for safety reasons, but also to ensure that there is plenty of space and staff to accommodate ticket holders. It has sold out every other year.
