The Catered Affair Takes to the Water: Private Yacht Events in Boston

Experience elegance at sea with the latest offering from The Catered Affair: private yacht rentals with elegant catered dinners, brunches, after parties, weddings and receptions. Join us on The Valiant, a 97-foot yacht in Boston Harbor. This elegant, 1920s style vessel offers a unique experience for up to 100 people, including overnight accommodations for up to eight guests. A traditional salon area boasts a full bar, leading to a wicker-furnished fantail. A large canopy deck is the perfect covered outdoor space for a reception, dinner or wedding ceremony. An event on The Valiant is the perfect way to kick off a wedding weekend, hold a rehearsal dinner or after party or bid farewell with a morning-after brunch that gives guests a spectacular view of the Boston skyline.

The Catered Affair has truly taken the aquatic theme to heart with menu ideas for those aboard The Valiant, highlighting the fresh seafood available year-round here in New England.
