    It's all about making amazing memories

    I had my daughter's engagement party on the National Elite in DC. There aren't enough stars in the sky that could I could give for this experience. Everything was beyond my expectations! (and I am sometimes a hard person to please because I want everything to be PERFECT and it was!) From my first email to Maykayla, I knew I was in the right hands. I filled her inbox with questions and she was always available to answer everything. Every email ended with "is there anything else I can help you with," and I knew it was sincere. Maykayla was there to welcome us aboard and it was like seeing family. Maddie took over during the cruise and made sure everything went smoothly; it was perfect. The rest of the crew was amazing and the food was delicious! As you can tell from my review, we LOVED everything about it. It's all about making amazing memories and the National Elite team helped create one for our family. Thank you!

    Private Yacht Wedding!

    Planned my wedding on the Capital Elite Yacht for our small wedding of 40 guests in exactly one month. Rachel did a wonderful job coordinating the most cost efficient option for us and we were able to personalize so much of our big day. My groom and I were very pleased with how everything looked and ended up. Our food was delicious, we were able to upgrade to a carving beef station since we had seafood allergies on board and our guests were waited on quite well. DJ Fred was in touch with us beforehand and did everything we requested. The only hiccup was parking, which we thought we had figured out using the parking garage under the Safeway until that was full and a family member had to panic for parking fast. The wharf is under construction and to my knowledge, working on adding better parking. We both highly recommend the capital elite for a small wedding, because how many people can say they got married on a private yacht?!
