Create a Sea of Memories Aboard Yacht StarShip

I would like to thank you and the staff of Yacht StarShip for my birthday party celebration it was wonderful, everyone had a great time. I look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you so much.

Norda L., Birthday Cruise, February 2020

I want to thank you for the amazing event that we had last night on the Yacht Starship. Without your impeccable attention, dedication, and courteous staff, we would not have had as successful a night as we did. We received raving reviews throughout the evening and gained several new members for the Chamber. I look forward to working with Yacht Starship again in the near future as we would love to host another event at your beautiful venue (perhaps post holidays!).
