A Stag or Hen parties on a large modern luxury yacht is a fantastic opportunity to bond with friends and give the Groom or Bride to be an event in style. The events typically take place over a summers weekend and are great fun with action packed activities and itineraries, vacation like backdrops and a busy nightlife. Having the most recorded sun shine days of the year in the UK the Isle Of Wight rarely disappoints and we are always hearing the lads/and ladettes commenting on how the weekend feels like they’ve been on an overseas trip! Below is some examples of typical weekend packages:
Prince William and Harry made up part of a 23-person strong party who certainly knew how to party “It’s been an awesome stag do — it’ll just take us a while to recover!” laughed Harry as the celebrations drew to a close
Based in Port Hamble and Southampton’s Ocean Village, you’re always within easy reach of some premium nightlife centres of the south coast, and there’s no better way to rock up than by pulling up in your yacht. Here’s the kind of shenanigans you can expect to get up to:
After dropping off your bags & getting settled into your cabin it’s time for a safety brief before setting off for Cowes Yacht Haven on the Isle of Wight. Cowes is the heart of the yachting scene and in summer it’s absolutely buzzing. If you want to follow in the royal’s footsteps, why not head to The Anchor pub where William and Harry’s Stag Do spent the evening listening to live music and playing pool.
Wake up the next morning and be prepared for a fun packed day aboard your yacht with exhilarating sailing, swimming, music, RIB rides, abseiling and general thrills & spills as we run down the Solent to anchor off the Needles rocks in Alum Bay for a BBQ lunch.
This is all just the pre amble to the main event, however as we moor in Yarmouth marina in the afternoon before heading into the town for some drinks at the yacht club. Head back to your yacht to prepare for the evening and dress into costumes for pre evening photo opportunity! It’s off to The Hut for local cuisine on the beachfront at Colwell Bay, a stunning location on the beach with a party atmosphere and an amazing sunset to boot.
Try the Dark & Stormy cocktail jugs (Rum & Ginger Ale ) with the fresh local lobster! Then it’s back to central Yarmouth for dancing on the tables Salty’s bar, listed as one of the top five stag and hen party destinations in the UK. Finish the night off back at the yacht for the after party celebrations.
On Sunday, we take a slightly more chilled approach as we take the yacht to the idyllic Newtown Creek nature reserve with a BBQ lunch before heading back home, though not before we’ve stitched up the Stag by pulling him up the 22 metre mast and dragging him behind the yacht in the bosuns chair… what a weekend to remember!
