We’ve asked Chicago Electric Boat Company (CEBC) what are the main questions to address when renting a boat for a special event. Here are some to consider that are specific for a boat or yacht transportation to your Event:
- What is the type of event and what is your guest size?
The type and size of your party can determine the vessel you’ll need. For instance, if it’s a Wedding (like George & Amal Clooney), then you may want to forego the cycle or donut boats (which are perfect for engagement celebrations, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and corporate team building events) and opt for a motorboat with a cover or a statement making yacht! Also, you should know if any special accommodations are needed such as handicap access since some vessels have limited space with narrow corridors.
- How many hours are included in the boat rental fee?
Determine if it’s a 1-way or a roundtrip. For Weddings, a 1-way trip is more likely from the Hotel or Ceremony to the Reception!
