Planning a Rendezvous on Your Luxury Boat

We’re already dreaming of a time when we can gather all of our closest friends and take a trip out on the water. There’s nothing quite like pulling a luxury boat out of the dock and enjoying a leisurely afternoon with friends and family while soaking up the sun, listening to live music on the Lake, stopping at your favorite restaurants, or even enjoying a sunset. If you are looking forward to entertaining on board your luxury boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, here are a few tips to help you get prepared!

Safety First

Obviously, the most important thing is that everyone comes back safely. Water and parties can be a unique combination, and when precautions aren’t taken, the chance for slips and falls on slippery surfaces or worse are always a possibility. Before you head out, amens are that everyone on the boat understands how to be safe, and communicate all of the emergency procedures.

Plan Your Guest List

The only real downside to gathering a group on a boat (although maybe it’s an upside for some introverts!) is that you can’t fit ALL of your friends on the boat at the same time. It’s important to know your boat's capacity is and not go over this number. This may just mean that you will have to plan several different events to include all of your family and friends at different times, but it will also make for a much more intimate event.

Prepare for Weather

Even if the weather is expected to be calm, you will want to make plans for conditions that could get uncomfortable. This can include rain, lightning, or high winds. A surprise shower could always pop up, and having rain parkas for your guests will be a welcome supply. Of course, on the flip side, you will also want to be sure that there is enough shade to keep your guests cool if the weather turns hot and sunny.

Have a Fun Boat Theme

One of the most entertaining aspects of planning for a fun event can include decorations - and this doesn’t have to stop because you’re on a boat! Obviously, there are the popular holidays with expected decor like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, etc. But you can also decorate the boat with other summer themes like golf, fishing, mixed drinks, and more!

Food Is Secondary, Not Primary

While food is normally the top focus at a party, boat parties are a little different. The sights, the company, and the events (if you go to any) are going to be the focus, but food can help support this. You don’t want to be serving up elaborate and complex meals on the boat, as this can be a hassle as well as a waste of your boating time. However, you can easily provide small appetizers, fast finger foods, and the ever-popular drinks.

Plan a Pick Up Location

When planning a rendezvous on the boat, you’ll want to arrange a place for everyone to meet so they can get on the boat. You’ll also want to make sure that there is plenty of parking. For many boaters at the Lake of the Ozarks, this can be a marina where they store their craft. Just be sure that if you are meeting at a marina that they have everything they need to park there if it is private parking. If you have enough space for parking at your home, you could also make the meetup location at your private dock! Then you can have an after-party at your lakefront luxury home at the Lake of the Ozarks, and continue everything poolside.
