About Us

World Yacht has been hosting unforgettable events on the Hudson River for over three decades. Since the introduction in 1984, our vessels have set the industry standard, both in excellence and experience.

We put our long history and experience to work for our clients, ensuring every detail of events aboard our boats are planned and executed to perfection. World Yacht’s guests are always left in awe, not only from the New York Skyline, Statue of Liberty, and iconic NYC landmark views but from the exceptional service provided as well. Regardless of the occasion or size, we have the perfect vessel to host your event, whether it’s Duchess, Princess, Destiny, or one of our many other partner vessels. Our success is defined by thirty years of cherished memories created on our yachts.

The neighborhood surrounding our home base at Pier 81 has evolved into a social, culinary, and entertainment destination in New York City. Many of our charters choose to launch from this midtown location as it’s located in close proximity to Times Square, the High Line, and Hudson Yards. We also have the ability to launch our yachts from other piers in New York and New Jersey. While food, drink, and event trends are always evolving, the hallmarks of our business are personalized service, attention to detail, and commitment to our customers.

As a full-service events company, World Yacht offers everything you need to throw the perfect party:
