Event Planning on the Best Luxury Yachts
serving the New York and New Jersey area
At Smooth Sailing Celebrations, every event is given special treatment. We make it our business to make sure your event is unique. Our award-winning expertise and customer service make the process smooth sailing.
No scary moments.
No detail too small.
No event too large.
Just easy event planning that is executed flawlessly.
We are dedicated to outstanding customer service. Smooth Sailing Celebrations has almost 2 decades of nautical event planning experience, so you get the inside track on the best yachts available for your event.
We know which yacht companies have the best reputations — from the quality of the cuisine — to the attentiveness of the wait staff — to the level of yacht maintenance. And you save valuable time, money and stress by making one phone call to obtain menus, pricing, and pictures of the yacht options that best suit your criteria. We obtain our pricing and policies directly from the boats, so pricing is never increased in any way, nor are there additional fees. We thrive each year based on word-of-mouth referrals.
Exceeding expectations is what makes Smooth Sailing Celebrations stand out for professional meeting and event planners, as well as individuals who are planning a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Keeping our promises, meeting deadlines and coming in on budget is what earns the respect and loyalty of our customers.
You save time, money and stress with our complimentary service, which gives you access to many different yachts, easily expanding your options. Contact us rather than the individual yachts, which have limited inventory, creating a need to fit a square peg into a round hole.

Here’s how easy event planning on a yacht works:
The first step is fully understanding your event objectives, style and budget by carefully listening to your needs and concerns. The pros and cons of the most ideal yachts for your event are then spelled out for you based on your requirements — making your decision effortless. Educating the client lets you choose the best option for you because Smooth Sailing Celebrations takes the guesswork out of the process. It's just that simple.
