Private Yacht Charter Updates & Safety Information
We are excited to get back to cruising and helping you plan an unforgettable private event on the water in Miami! As we resume rentals for all luxury vessels, please know that the health and well-being of our guests and crew members is our number one priority. We are closely monitoring the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as our local health departments and authorities on the best practices for reopening. Our ample yachts feature multiple decks with indoor and outdoor spaces. Our outdoor decks offer access to direct sunlight, which studies suggest helps prevent the spread of coronavirus. We will continue to assess, refine, and update our standards to keep you safe as new information is available.
COVID-19 Safety Measures
Per current guidelines, our dining room will be arranged at 50% capacity. Our 60” round tables will be set six feet apart for six guests, as opposed to our previous ten, which will offer ample room and additional space between guests.
Our flow-through dining arrangement will allow us to control the number of guests in the dining area at any one time, as well as the flow to stations, which will limit lines and guest contact.
All employees will have their temperature taken at the start of their shift. All staff uniforms will adhere to CDC guidelines. This will include gloves and masks that will be disinfected/changed for every event.
Cleaning & Sanitation
We will be providing hand sanitizing stations throughout the vessel, at boarding on the dock, on every deck, as well as near food and beverage areas.
We will have a specialized team thoroughly clean and disinfect key surfaces and areas before and after each event, with two hours specifically designated to ensure that this task is prioritized.
To maintain cleanliness throughout the event, cleaning specialists will be tasked with ongoing cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch and common areas, which include but are not limited to handrails, backs of chairs, doorknobs, bars, counters, high tops, low cocktail tables, coffee tables, bathroom sinks, toilet handles, etc. These tasks will be completed per the CDC and Miami-Dade County guidelines.
Our bathrooms feature ample individual stalls. These areas will fall into our 30-minute cleaning guidelines and will be maintained and serviced by our cleaning specialists. Bathrooms are equipped with disinfectant soap, hand sanitizers, and disposable hand towels.
Glassware, flatware, and tableware will be washed, disinfected, and steam cleaned before and throughout the event. Rolled up flatware and water glasses will be provided for each guest and presented individually at each place setting.
Welcome drinks are freshly poured upon boarding in sanitized glassware. To curb the need for congregating at the bar or making long lines, our staff will be providing cocktail service to all guests, as well as handing out welcome drinks.
All food and drinks will be handled, presented, and served to guests to minimize cross-contamination. Butler-passed hors d’oeuvres will be individually arranged to reduce the need for guest contact. All platters and food stations will also be staffed with an attendant who will be responsible for personally serving each guest.
Our new and improved buffet techniques will feature smaller stations with ample space in between each station to prevent crowding. Our existing procedures will ensure that our stations are staffed to serve guests individually and erase the need for self-service. This measure will prevent serving utensils from coming into contact with any guests.
Our bread, salad, coffee, and dessert will be served tableside, eliminating the need for self-service. Salt, pepper, and condiments will be individually packaged for each guest.
If additional steps are required, we are happy to provide them as requested.
