5 Tips for Planning Out Your Perfect Yacht Proposal

Proposing to your significant other is an absolutely unforgettable major milestone in life. It’s perfectly natural to want everything to be perfect and come up with a magical scenario to make the moment even more special. One great way to do this is by getting a yacht charter for your proposal.

Picture it. You’re on the water for golden hour, and the sky is a beautiful wash of blended orange and yellow, the soft waves are crashing all around you, the breeze embraces you both, you put on your song, and you get down on one knee.

It’s a great way to ask for your beloved’s hand in marriage, as long as you execute it perfectly. Make sure you avoid any hitches by following the right steps to planning a yacht charter proposal.

1. Plan Out Your Schedule

Think about the time you want to propose. Sunset is a great time to do it, but you may prefer something earlier or later. With that in mind, you’ll need to consider the time it takes to get to the yacht, set it up, and sail out to the perfect spot you have in mind. 

Of course, as with any proposal, you need to make sure the day is cleared for both you and your partner.

2. Take the Weather Into Account

Make sure you check the weather forecast for the date you select for your yacht proposal. Very inclement weather not only ruins the mood but also puts you and your special someone at risk. If weather conditions take a turn for the worse, your charter crew may even have to refuse to undock the boat. 

It’s also best to check whether it’s going to be an overly hot or drizzly day. These aren’t quite as dangerous but may still get in the way of creating a romantic atmosphere. 

3. Coordinate With the Crew

If you want to decorate the yacht, have some music playing, or even have a particular area where you want to propose, it’s best to communicate this with any onboard crew so everyone is aligned. They can even help you with the setup and make sure things are handled while you pay attention to your significant other. It’s also helpful if you’re trying to make the yacht look magical, but you don’t want your partner to notice anything before the actual proposal.

4. Consider a Cruise

You may be thinking about how you can justify a yacht ride to your partner. You can always take a lovely cruise that will take you through some gorgeous scenery first. It’s a great lead-in to your proposal and gives you an excellent excuse to go yachting without divulging your plans. 

5. Set Up the Spot

You’re likely going to want photos of the big moment. So, scout the perfect location, so you know exactly where to go on the day itself. When the timing is right, and you have the perfect backdrop, you can go for it. 


The exact details of your plan will, of course, depend on what your vision is for the proposal. A good yacht charter should be able to provide you with the necessary information you need to fully map out your plans for the day. Once you’ve ironed out all of these details, all you have to do is get to the big day and pop the question.
