We chartered the Aqua Azul for our wedding in September 2017. And it was spectacular! From the spacious and well-equipped yacht, to the delicious food and the professional and attentive staff - nothing was left to chance. The service provided by Dorit and team made the entire process seamless and turnkey, which was echoed by all our parties (photographer, florist, DJ). They KNOW how to run a wedding, thinking of details that would never occurred to us. The pride of ownership was apparent from the first conversation and made all the difference. Thank you for ensuring we had a magical day for us and our guests.

All our guests told us this was the best wedding! The pictures around the city skyline, and the Statue of Liberty are amazing! You literally float at the Statue of Liberty for a few minutes for pics! We wanted a wedding that was different than your cookie cutter weddings so we started looking into weddings on a yacht on the Hudson. We looked 5 different ships before deciding on the Aqua Azul. The Aqua Azul blew the other ships out of the water. It was the largest and the most up to date out of all of them. Plus you had the whole ship to yourselves. We had our concerns, but Dorit took care of everything. She definitely had her hands full with us. We are very picky eaters and wanted a very specific menu. She went above and beyond to make it all work! We had the most amazing mashed potato bar during cocktail hour! We were worried about not being able to do a rehearsal, but her and her staff have clearly done this before. They had everyone lined up in order and ready to go. Our cake, WoW! In my opinion no one ever eats the cake but it's all very different when you have a cannoli filling! It was amazing! When it comes to the boats you get what you pay for. The AquaAzul wasn't the cheapest but Dorit and her staff do such an amazing job you can see why. She even helped us with an issue we were having with our photographer prior to the wedding.

What a Great Venue! My wedding was on August 19,2017 aboard the grand Aqua Azul Yacht. This was the best idea I could ever have for my Wedding (Thank you Camille from Smooth Sailing for recommending). The yacht speaks for itself - It is beautiful, classy and Dorit the owner and her staff was truly amazing. I could not have asked for anything more. The weather was beautiful. I had my wedding in the evening where ceremony begun at 7:30PM - The yacht has about 4 decks and the ceremony was on the 4th (top deck) and the cocktail hour was on deck 3 then the dinner hour was on deck 2. My guests mind was blown away, as soon as they stepped on the yacht at 7:00PM (1st deck), they were greeted with about 6 wait staff standing there holding drinks (sparkling water, wine of your choice etc.). When my guest saw that, they were looking forward to what will happen next on this fabulous yacht and they were not disappointed. Everyone has told me repeatedly and still talking about how that was the best wedding they ever attended. The food was great and bars on every deck. Couldn't have asked for a better night or better venue, with the sky light and Statue of Liberty backdrop (looks great for your pictures) Thank you Dorit so much for your kindness and your time on my special night to make everything go as smoothly as it did. It was truly an amazing wedding aboard the Aqua Azul. I will definitely recommend this yacht as well as I will use it if I should have any other event. Thank You So Much. Dana & Christian Bete

My wife is in the unique position of being a part of the nautical event planning industry, which means working with all of the Hudson Harbor yachts and all of the boat owners since opening her business 13 years ago. When it came time to plan our daughter's wedding, she treated our daughter like any other bride and showed her several boats and discussed options. We secretly hoped she'd select the Aqua Azul yacht because I knew from years of experience that the boat successfully executes flawless events each and every time. We were very glad when she told me their decision was the Aqua Azul, in part because of the covered rooftop deck with outdoor dance floor that allows guests to have the sensation of being outside even if the weather is not optimum. Weather is the one thing that Dorit cannot control! :) We had very high expectations for the event and have to say a very grateful & heartfelt thank you to Dorit and her entire staff because those expectations were exceeded. The event flowed exactly as we'd envisioned from start to finish and, believe me, there were numerous unusual details. Although a yacht rooftop is non-traditional for a wedding ceremony, it was elegant and appropriately tear-inducing and made for wonderful pictures with the NYC skyline as a backdrop. The cocktail hour was plentiful & delicious, there were no buffet lines and everyone was so full of great food that the plated wedding cake & coffee had to be put out later after everyone danced to make room. Our guests danced on the rooftop, relaxed on the white garden chairs & lounge furniture, and took their selfies while the boat sailed past the illuminated landmarks - Dorit made sure that we were at the Statue of Liberty exactly at sunset, as requested. All our friends and family said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to and all my friends want their adult kids to get married onboard as well!

Our wedding aboard the Aqua Azul this past Sunday was more than anything we could have hoped for!!!! The yacht itself is so beautiful, but to see the way it was set up for our wedding made it magical. We had ~180 guests and it was so impressive how smoothly the entire evening flowed!! Dorit was so accommodating and flexible with all our requests through the entire planning process and the staff throughout our reception was friendly and attentive. We've had so many of our family members and friends tell us how unique our reception was, which was exactly the feeling we were going for :) Thank you so much, Dorit and everyone at the Aqua Azul for the wedding of our dreams!!!!!

Dorit was PHENOMENAL to work with. She has all the connections to florists, photographers, etc if you need it. My wedding was PERFECT!!! The yacht was exquisite. My guests are STILL talking about how lovely our wedding was...the food...the service...the cruise around Manhattan...everything. I can't wait until our 5 year anniversary because we'd love to take another cruise. I can't sing the praises of the NOA DANIELLE loud enough!

I had my wedding and reception aboard this beautiful vessel. It was AMAZING! The staff was so nice and professional. They handled my 300 guests with a smile. Everyone of our guest had the best time. Ms. Dorit and her staff went above and beyond to make this day special and it was! The food was great and the service was excellent. Thank you aqua azul!

My September wedding aboard Aqua Azul was amazing. All of my guests told me it was the best wedding they'd ever attended and a big part of that was Dorit, her staff and this beautiful venue. I got engaged in the Spring and knew I needed to find a venue quickly, this was quite difficult because I wanted to get married within 4 or 5 months. Dorit was a total professional and her team did everything they could to make our day as beautiful and memorable as possible. Because I am a professional event producer and I work in the food & beverage business, I had a lot of requests and high expectations. I can honestly say the vast majority of my expectations were met or exceeded. I know how much it takes to have a nearly perfect wedding in NYC and having it on Aqua Azul was the best decision we made. It was on the water, provided breathtaking views, great food, wonderful service and was unforgettable all around. I had a sunset ceremony of the open roof deck, followed by a cocktail hour, sit down dinner followed by dancing back on the cocktail floor. The bridal suite was spacious and useful, the flow of movement from one deck to another kept the guests entertained and I received nothing but positive feedback on all parts of the evening. Dorit and her team will work with you on all elements of what you want, including scheduling and pricing. If something doesn't work out, she'll do her best to resolve it. Total professionals all around. This is true of any venue in NYC, just make sure you have all requests and expectations figured out ahead of time so that there are no surprises or disappointments at the last minute. The pricing was beyond fair for the generous offerings all around too, a great bang for your buck. Highly recommended for a memorable, elegant wedding. I would do it all over again.
