Why A Luxury Yacht Charter Is Ideal For Your Next Corporate Event in St. Petersburg

Luxury Yacht Carter

Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting a corporate sailing event for a prominent banking company during their annual convention. Along with that great day on the water, we also set a benchmark for ourselves: we hosted over 100 guests and used our entire fleet to pull it off!

Now, while Waypoints® Yacht Charters is known for luxury yacht charters that set sail from our bases in Annapolis, St. Petersburg, the USVI, BVI, and the Bahamas, vacations aren’t the only way to enjoy time on our award-winning luxury monohulls and catamarans.

If you’re looking into corporate or team- building events in St. Petersburg, it’s time to embrace the beautiful destination we have right at our doorstep. At Waypoints, we are deeply committed to making our events dynamic, entertaining, and fun.

To give you a sense of just what’s in store for you and your team, here’s a quick recap of the beautiful day we just had on the water, as well as some of the other highlights you’ll experience when you join us for a luxury yacht charters team building event.

Highlights From Our All-Fleet Corporate Sailing Event

It truly was the kind of day amateur and experienced sailors alike dream about – perfect temps, with clear skies and wind gusts reaching 20 knots.

Our corporate event clients, with their over 100 enthusiastic participants, had just finished attending a long convention and were eager to get on the water. Sailors, both novice and seasoned, were excited to be there as they took in the sea air and got ready to race.

The plan for the day: create a little competition between teams with an all-fleet sailing event from St. Pete to the iconic Skyway Bridge and back. Watching our fleet take to the water in all its glory – including catamarans, monohulls, and powercats – made for quite a scene! After a thrilling out-and-back and a close finish, we wrapped up a successful day 

What Makes Corporate Events on A Luxury Yacht So Dynamic

What comes to mind when you normally think of a corporate retreat? Or when you search for team building or corporate events in St. Petersburg? 

While there’s nothing wrong with the occasional escape room or paint-and-sip wine painting, they don’t take advantage of St. Petersburg’s nearly year-round sunshine. 

After all, a corporate event on a luxury yacht means more than just replacing the conventional conference room with expansive decks, endless blue skies, and billowing sails. The events themselves are dynamic, ranging from a comfortable half-day cruise to incorporating races, allowing teams to experience the thrill of competition and collaboration.

The flexible format caters to all levels of sailing experience, ensuring everyone can participate fully in the experience. As we saw with this group, the time aboard our luxury yachts charts a course to both a team-building success and a cherished memory.

All Experience Levels Welcome

Now, besides your favorite pair of boat shoes, let’s talk about what else your team might need to enjoy their day on a luxury yacht charter.

As far as experience goes, we ensure that sailing prowess is no barrier to enjoying our events. We equip each yacht with a skilled captain who guides the team, allowing participants to engage as much or as little as they wish in the sailing process. 

Whether it’s an all-out race or a leisurely sail, our captains adjust the experience to suit the group’s comfort level. This inclusivity makes our corporate yacht charters a perfect fit for companies seeking a unique and accommodating team-building activity.

We are happy to provide water for our guests and encourage you to bring the snacks of your choice to make the most of your time out on the water.

Best Times of the Year for St. Petersburg Yacht Events

St. Petersburg is famously sunny, offering favorable weather conditions all year long. It even boasts the Guinness World Record for most consecutive days of sun. 

With that, there are very few times when you and your team won’t enjoy the best of what the Gulf Coast has to offer. For corporate yacht charters, the optimal times are spring and fall, when the weather is ideal—not too hot but still sunny, with consistent breezes perfect for sailing. Winter provides a cooler yet equally viable option for those looking to escape the more extreme conditions elsewhere, with gentler sun as an added perk.
