The French Riviera is renowned for its glitz and glamour, its stunning coastal scenery, its yachts and cars, and its parties and nightlife. So imagine being able to combine all of these elements of the good life on the Côte d’Azur in one unforgettable evening. Transform a luxury yacht charter into a memorable party yacht with 212 Yachts help, making your event the one to remember!

Party yachts are becoming increasingly popular in the South of France and Monaco. Largely due to the action-packed calendar of important events that take place throughout the season on the French Rivera. The Monaco Grand Prix, Cannes film festival, MIPIM and the Lions festival are just a few of the functions that attract a large international crowd to the Côte d’Azur annually. Every year companies and fun seeking individuals are looking for new, exciting venues for their social events, and many are now renting yachts on which to host their parties. Chartering a luxury yacht provides a floating party venue where people can come together to drink, dance and eat.

The idea of the party yacht is now all the rage for wedding receptions and birthday parties on the French Riviera, as well as the full range of corporate events. In the South of France, party yachts can be chartered for cocktail cruises of up to 200 guests. Popular voyages for the floating party include going from Cannes to Saint Tropez, taking in the striking Massif d’Esterel coastline. Or travelling from Nice to Monaco, around the beautiful Cap Ferrat, passing Beaulieu sur Mer and Eze. For those wishing to charter a party yacht for more than 200 guests, quayside events can be arranged. The yacht does not move out of the port, but there is no restriction on the number of guests.
