When it comes to yacht parties, people often think of social events occupied by some of the wealthiest people. The media often portrays yachts as upper-class luxuries, filled with people in suits and sipping on wine older than themselves. In Singapore, we refer to these people as ‘high-SES’; or people of high socioeconomic status.
However, did you know that you can do a private yacht rental for only $400? That’s cheaper than a night’s stay in a premium room at Marina Bay Sands.

It doesn’t matter if you’re organising a romantic getaway or planning a company milestone trip – we offer cheap yacht rental in Singapore to fit any occasions.
In fact, we might probably be the cheapest place to rent a yacht in Singapore.

What types of yachts are there for me to rent?
Each yacht has its unique features to offer.
Certain yachts can accommodate more people on board, making it ideal for gatherings like birthday parties or corporate events. Other yachts with sleeker designs are made for travel, making it ideal for long-distance cruising, or even yacht racing.
Depending on the types of yachts, yacht rental prices also differ. Factors such as the number of guests invited, the size of the yacht, and other activity add-ons will determine the total budget.
To hand-pick one suitable for you, you’ll first need to understand how different yachts cater to different purposes.
Yachtly is a platform for renting yachts. We offer two main types of yachts: monohull yachts and catamarans. Each of this is a subset of motor yachts and sailing yachts. Let’s take a look at what each yacht is suitable for.
Motor yachts are one of the most popular vessels when it comes to the demand for a luxurious yacht charter. For that reason, it’s probably a good thing that they’re amongst the most widely available forms of yachts as well.
Monohull motor yachts
Monohull motor yachts are perfect for thrill-seekers. If you’re renting a yacht for birthday parties, monohull motor yachts would be the best choice. At an average length of 78 ft, these large yachts can accommodate all sorts of parties and a large number of people.
Catamaran motor yachts
Catamarans yachts have great manoeuvrability because of its twin engines. This makes it easier for the yacht to dock too. Some catamaran motor yachts also offer plenty of amenities onboard.
Depending on its space and storage, you may find Jacuzzis, swimming pools, entertainment systems, and other sorts of facilities. You and your guests can also sail to different locations as long as it remains within legal waters.
Compared to a motor yacht, sailing yachts are smaller in size. They range from 30 ft to 59 ft, commodious enough to host events such as children’s birthday parties or private business events.
Monohull sailing yachts
Sailing yachts have a vintage, and romantic feel to them that motor yachts lack. If you ever wanted to re-enact Rose and Jack’s scene from the Titanic, this is a great place to start.
Chartering a sailing yacht can allow you to truly experience the vitality of sea life, and appreciate the engineering that made wind power possible. A monohull sailing yacht is also almost impossible to capsize, making it extremely safe at sea.
Catamaran sailing yachts
Catamaran sailing yachts are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their majestic grandeur. The stylish interior gives couples every reason to hold their wedding on a catamaran.
Given its generous board space, it can accommodate full-size cabins, en suite facilities, and comfortable living areas.
If you’re looking for something more high-end, you can check out our sailing catamaran. The rental fees for this premium yacht start at $4200. Given its price, you know it’s no ordinary yacht.
Yachts such as expedition yachts, classic yachts, and open yachts are also excellent choices.
Expedition yachts are designed for long cruises – perfect for those who have an unbridled desire to see the world. They are also built for power, stability, and efficiency, making them one of the safest types of yachts in the world.
Classic yachts have a romantic feel to them. As if made for Insta-worthy pictures, these yachts possess graceful lines, fine craftsmanship and a raw character. Newlyweds can also cruise in a classic yacht to their honeymoon destination!
Open yachts – also crowned as the sports car of yachts, are a favourite amongst yacht enthusiasts. Its sleek, sporty look, along with its high performance is akin to that of the thrill of riding a jet ski.
Finding an ideal yacht to rent for your occasion
Finding an ideal yacht is no different from finding your desired hotel room. Yachts are usually custom-tailored to meet the needs and preferences of its yacht owner. This means that every yacht comes in different designs, serve different purposes, and different sets of rules to observe.
Half your job is done once you establish what you’re renting a yacht for. Here are some common occasions people rent a yacht for.

Wedding & Solemnisation
Exchanging vows onboard a yacht defies the norm of holding a Wedding and Solemnisation on land. Couple it with a starry-eyed setting, this occasion marks a unique experience to be remembered. Chartering a bareboat yacht has a starting fee of $1000, and additional costs will apply for dinner, decorations and other equipment rentals.
Corporate Events & Gatherings
Whether you’re thinking of a private gathering or planning for a company retreat, the platform has mid-sized yachts catered for such occasions. For private business events, a prestigious catamaran starting from $1600 is a good choice. Whereas for a close-knit company retreat, a smaller catamaran at a modest rental price of $649 will suffice.
You don’t even have to be having an occasion to rent a yacht – you can do a yacht rental just to ferry you around Singapore’s waters, or even rent one as a fishing boat if you so desire.

Things to consider before renting a yacht
Now that you have established the occasion you’re renting a yacht for, here are a few essential things to consider.
Before anything else, you need to figure out how much budget you have or how much you’re willing to spend on a yacht party.
Although we offer cheap yacht rental in Singapore, you should take into account the prices of additional services. For example, you may require more water toys if you’re inviting more guests.
Other things to account in your budget may include things such as foreign currency for overseas activities and emergency funds.
Depending on the size of the yacht, the amount of people you can bring on board is limited.
Smaller yachts are suitable for private parties, while larger yachts are more suitable for large gatherings such as birthdays or corporate events.
It would be helpful to create a guest list beforehand to help you determine the size of the yacht you intend to charter.
Certain yachts may also be unsuitable for specific demographics. For instance, pregnant women and the elderly may want to refrain from chartering superyachts, while children may require extra safety and supervision.
Knowing whom you intend to invite, as well as their preferences, will definitely help in planning your itinerary. It can also help you to decide on the type of yacht that you want to rent.
For instance, if you’re planning on throwing a party with friends who love watersports, you may want to consider renting extra water toys.
You can also have dinner on board the yacht, prepared for you by the crew. If your rental takes place at night, you might also get to see Sentosa’s fireworks!
