Is there any object that better suggests wealth, power, and success than a yacht? If there is, it’s hard to think of one. Perhaps a private jet, but that isn’t as comfortable for those important business get-togethers.

A yacht really shows that you have class, and you have the ability to show off that class in the best ways. When you have a potential client or a new business partner and you really need to impress them in all the right ways, a yacht can go a long way to get the first impressions right.

Here’s the problem, though: most of us don’t have yachts. Most of us don’t even know someone who has a yacht. We can all recognize how nice it would be to have a major business party or corporate outing on a yacht, but we may not have access to one to make that happen.

There’s a solution for this, though, and that’s in yacht rental. Despite the success of this idea, it isn’t as well-known as it should be. That’s why I want to write about it here. It’s great, it’s affordable, and it provides that perfect yacht experience for your business needs.

Here in Chicago, we have Anita Dee, which has been highly praised for the success of the events it hosts. Imagine cruising around Lake Michigan and down the river through downtown Chicago in the best style. It’s an irresistible mental image. I know less about other cities and parts of the country, but there are sure to be yacht rentals wherever there’s a decent-sized dock.

One of the great things about this option isn’t just the immediate impression you give, but the flexibility a good yacht rental service offers you. Most yacht rentals will give you options about how you want the event catered. You can get the best drinks, high-quality catering, and more. At the same time, you have enough space to organize the party or get together to meet your specific needs. You can make the event as intimate as you want.

Sure, you could get these options by renting out a big room in a hotel or by just going out to a good restaurant, but you wouldn’t be able to provide the same effect. There’s something about yachts that make people want to take risks, to find that next level of success. You spend time on a yacht, and you start to wish that yacht was yours. That, in turn, makes you eager to make the deals to reach that kind of success.

I’ve seen it happen plenty of times. Yachts are magical that way. It’s why they’re popular for weddings as well. It just makes you believe in a better future when you’re looking at a beautiful city from out on the water.

When you’ve got a big meeting ahead and a client you have to land, don’t risk it by just doing the same old dinner and drinks. Get them on a yacht and let the water make the sale for you.
