Dorit and her staff were amazing. We chartered the Aqua Azul for a Rehearsal dinner of 152 people. Dorit’s service to detail made our planning process painless. If you are looking for full service delivered with excellence on food and service with amazing backdrop of the City and the Statue of Liberty, then this is your venue your guest will talk about for months! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dorit/staff and the Aqua Azul!Sent on 06/24/2018

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.Sent on 11/12/2017

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!Sent on 09/17/2017
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.
