Flawless Execution is Our Mission


With more than 25 years of achievements in the luxury yacht and hospitality industries, Steven Tanzman has a rare depth of experience in the flawless execution of one-of-a-kind elegant events.


Our Culinary Approach


At Yacht Events LLC, food and the exquisite execution of its service are our passion. Our approach is decidedly different. What sets us apart is our unique and singular emphasis on “private dining”. Absent the daily distraction of restaurant/hotel service, our Executive Chef and his handpicked team are solely focused on crafting original menus and culinary experiences tailored to exceed the personal dining expectations of you and your guests. With a farm/sea- to-table philosophy, our dining experiences are customized to your tastes and desires. Our culinary team eagerly awaits the opportunity to showcase an unforgettable event for you and your guests, drawing from the freshest local ingredients that our bountiful region has to offer. Our service tells the rest of the story.


While the core of our signature menu is Hudson Valley cuisine, our culinarians have the flexibility to produce menus of a much broader spectrum and delight in customizing menus that reflect your ideas and personal style.


Entertaining with us is effortless. On this very special day, all we ask is that you sit back, relax and enjoy your celebration while we see to all the details. 


We always meet the challenge, whether it’s a private yacht sailing to an unconventional docking spot or hundreds of staff and rentals coordinated and brought to an island accessible only by ferry. Our events range from small family or corporate celebrations to large galas with over 2,000 guests.

Clients praise Yacht Events for being “beyond accommodating,” “thoroughly professional,” “exceeding expectations” and having a calming presence under pressure while coordinating the many moving parts that contribute to a successful event.  Twice the highly acclaimed Biz Bash organization recognized Yacht Events as one of the top 10 event producers in New York City.

We can’t say enough good things about our experience with Steven and Yacht Events. Our wedding on the Cornucopia Destiny was everything we wanted – and multiple guests commented it was the best wedding they’d ever been to.

Steven was so easy to work with from the first meeting – a great blend of making recommendations while accommodating any request from us. He was responsive and helpful through the entire process, even letting us come back for a second walk through as we got closer to the wedding.

The venue itself was amazing. First, the views of NYC can’t be beaten (including the Brooklyn bridge, downtown skyline, and a close up of the Statue of Liberty). Plus everything was handled for us: table set up, linens, lighting, delicious food, and open bar. Steven was even on board during the wedding making sure everything ran smoothly. If you’re looking for a beautiful, unique, turn-key venue, do yourselves a favor and call Yacht Events.

I recently had my wedding reception on the Destiny yacht. I had such a great experience on board. Steve Tanzman in particular is a rockstar coordinator. He's not attached to his blackberry (as he is often on the yachts) but he'll get back to you within 24 hours and his advice was GREAT.
You will get a better value here than at most waterfront venues in NJ and the city. Perfect Spring, Summer or early Fall venue as the interior decks have AC and the breeze is just perfect when you're cruising.
The menu is very open to customization and the waitstaff is great. The food was great, the appetizers as well. If you bring your own cake they will serve a great dessert selection alongside. My guests were raving about that.
Very very memorable wedding reception venue.
