Corporate Entertainment & Hospitality

A corporate yacht charter can be arranged to coincide with prestigious events in Chicago as part of an incentive or reward scheme for top performing employees and to entertain existing or potential clients. It can also be ideal to encourage team bonding in an exhilarating atmosphere.

Chicago Fireworks Show

What better way enjoy corporate entertainment than from the front row of some of Chicago's most exciting events? Chicago’s Navy Pier hosts spectacular firework show every Wednesday and Saturday nights from Memorial Day until Labor Day. Enjoy the fireworks and celebration without the crowds and hassle aboard the Sophisticated Lady Yacht. The captain positions the yacht so you have a front row view of the fireworks. The show will be an experience like no other! It is a fabulous end to a wonderful evening.

Chicago Air & Water Show

The Chicago Air and Water show is the largest free show of it’s kind in the United States. It will include exhibitions by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the U.S. Army Parachute Team known as the Golden Knights. The 2017 shows take place in August. This is one of the premier events of the summer and the dates fill up quickly. Thursday the 18th and Friday the 19th are both afternoons when the squads normally practice for the weekend event. Many years the practice runs have been just as entertaining as the show due to the fact that the squads will repeat tricks over and over to perfect the timing. Both of these days make for excellent charter events combining the joy of a cruise with the excitement of the Air and Water Show.

Concerts By Boat

First Merit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island holds a series of lakefront concerts at the Northerly Island Pavilion which are enjoyed by boaters who gather to listen to concerts.

Enjoy the sounds of these great performers onboard the Sophisticated Lady Chicago boat rental.

The Sophisticated Lady can hold up to 49 guests for a business cruise in Chicago. A business cruise can improve employee morale and relationships. When the yachts are docked, employees can enjoy some of the great outdoor summer events Chicago offers such as concerts and firework shows for free! This is a great to experience team bonding and networking.

Get started with an amazing Chicago corporate yacht cruise!

I am lifelong friends with the owner of this yacht, so I guess you could say I know the captain. If you ever have a need for something like this, they do an amazing job!
