Forego the proverbial boardroom for a private sailing excursion across the brilliant waters of Santa Monica Bay or forge new business partnerships on a cruise to Catalina or the Channel Islands.

Whether an important business meeting or a long, lazy weekend, there is no better venue than the sapphire blue waters outside of Marina Del Rey. With options as open as the sea and boundless as a pirate’s booty, Blue Pacific Boating has one of the newest, most impressive sailboat and power charter fleets in Marina del Rey.

Blue Pacific’s vast collection of sailing yachts, cruisers, and racers measure between 23 and 72 feet long and are ideal for housing your next corporate event, private party, or romantic getaway. Available for up to seven-day charter experiences, the company’s fleet is evolving and will soon include powerboats, late-model sailboats, and a catamaran.

Corporate Cruising

Professional occasions are best experienced on the sleek, 63-foot Amari. The vessel holds up to 10 passengers and features three cabins with sleeping areas for up to nine people. Autopilot and electric operating systems keep your focus on clients, while swim step shower, radio, and television amenities offer modern comforts at sea.

 Private Passages 

The stylish 43-foot Liberty will impress parties with three cabins, sleeping as many as eight people while a private shower stall, stainless steel double sink, two-burner stove, microwave, and front-loading 12-volt refrigerator with freezer in the galley satisfy the highest standards. With radar, GPS, autopilot, iPod capability, and BBQ equipment on board, ocean-side events will be rendered obsolete.

 Blue Pacific Boating Charters

Fleet offers 14 yachts, including the largest Jeanneau model with nine berths, two heads, and three cabins.
