We're changing the game, again

Back in 2006 we were just a bunch of uni friends who wanted to revolutionise sailing and bring people together for 7 days of exploring, sailing, and partying in stunning destinations all over the world. The Yacht Week was born and now, 16 years later, we are still living that dream and take thousands of explorers on the week of their life every year.
But, of course, we didn't stop there. In 2008 we changed the game and the first EVER circle raft was formed. A young skipper called Leo decided to get the yachts into a circle formation and have the ultimate party at sea. He sneaked in external speakers and a smoke machine and in his words 'the party was next level'. We'd done it again, revolutionised sailing holidays and now the circle raft is our signature event and continues to amaze people year in year out.
We may have thought that our raft parties were already the best they could be but then someone had the million dollar idea of attaching an entire club sound system to a reclaimed taxi boat... whoever it was, we owe you a beer. With Void Acoustics the Buzz Boat came to life and has been powering our raft parties ever since. With the likes of Gorgon City, WEISS and Mark Knight playing from the Buzz it really took our rafts to the next level.
Now, we know what you're thinking - what can they possibly do now to make them EVEN better? Well sailor, we've only gone and absolutely changed the game again. Introducing, the floating dance-floor. The club at sea. The only place you need to be next summer. That's right, we took an old barge and have turned it into the newest, hottest club that everyone needs to be at. At the end of our tunnel raft, attached to the buzz boat, everyone gets front row seats and boy is it a sight to see. So what are you waiting for, if you needed another reason to book The Yacht Week, this is it! Join us in summer 2022 for the launch season of the floating dance-floor and watch us change the game again.
