There is no better time to party than New Year’s. It is when we really let loose and enjoy ourselves. Instead of doing the same old thing like going to bar or some tired office party, why not celebrate in style with a New Year’s boat rental? We are going to give you some top tips for an incredible time!

1) Location, Location, Location

Location, location, location! Whether you are traveling far or staying local, it’s wise to set a specific location in advance for everyone to hop aboard. Boatsetter allows you to search for boats in any location in the world, making it easy to set the foundation of your party planning. Our Boatsetter Boating Guide might just help you and your party crew find the perfect destination to ring in the new year!

2) O Captain! My Captain!

Even if you are an incredible captain, this is likely the last time you would ever want to be behind the wheel because you might want to throw a few back and enjoy the party as well! When looking for a boat with Boatsetter, you have the option to book your rental with a captain. They can help you figure out the best place to sail your New Year’s boat rental to so you get the best firework views in the city!

3) Split the Costs

Millennials are usually the people who want to party the hardest on New Year’s and unfortunately, they tend to have the least amount of money. By getting a group of friends together and splitting the costs, you can be sure to have the best New Year’s yet! And honestly, a New Year’s boat rental won’t cost you anymore than if you just went out and had a mediocre night at the local bar..

4) Be Prepared!

A day out on the water means that you’re going to need to prepare everything you intend on bringing for a 4-8 hour span. No need to let this stress you out, we’ve actually already done all the hard work for you!

5) Remember the Weather

The best place to be on a boat is usually on the deck. Late at night, even if you have managed to sail down south, it still may be a bit chilly. So dress accordingly and make sure you have a light jacket and a sweater.

Unless of course, you have made it down to the tropics and in that case, you will definitely need your swimsuit so you can jump in the water to really enjoy your evening!

The Best Way to Celebrate

There is no better way for you to enjoy the holiday than with a New Year’s boat rental. It is unique, fun and an unforgettable experience. So book early to make sure you get the perfect vessel for the perfect day!
