Years later, the company has expanded to include two more luxury yachts, RegentSea and FantaSea One.

I cant even begin to thank Fantasea yachts and my wedding coordinator Erin Adams for their outstanding work on our wedding. I started planning my wedding 7 months in the making. Erin helped us from the start. She was truly fantastic. From start to finish she worked her butt off on making our day the best day possible. I am a bit of a control, organization and planning freak and Erin was so sweet and kind about it. I would send her tons of emails and print outs of what I wanted and what I expected and she always stayed right on top of it. For the most part I had absolutely no stress planning my wedding and use to even brag about how I was no Bridezilla and everything came so easy for me. A few days before the wedding I found out my dove vendor wouldn't let me release doves anymore because it was getting dark faster and the birds wouldn't be able to find their way home. I was devastated because I was releasing these doves in remembrance of our daughter who passed and my husbands grand mother who also passed. Erin at last minute wrote a really beautiful testament in our vows for them and also placed a candle on a table for us to light during the ceremony in their honor. The extra effort she put in for that really meant a lot to both my husband and I. Now the day of the wedding. Erin worked so hard. All my family and guests came up to me and mentioned to me how hard she worked. We had open bar so everyone drank a lot and I know it wasn't easy maneuvering a crowd of 120 intoxicated people. But she did it with grace and professionalism. She really worked extra hard in making our day so special. We are so thankful to have worked with her and we are so happy that we chose the Fantasea Yachts for our wedding. It was the most magical day ever. Everything went perfect, we could not have asked for a better night. Thank you Fantasea Yachts and Erin!!!!

This place was gorgeous! We booked the clubhouse and it was great! You can see the whole marina from the clubhouse which made for a beautiful backdrop. Everyone served us very well and we had absolutely no worries throughout the whole process. They made us feel comfortable. Even the price they negotiated with us so that we were able to get what we wanted at a price we could afford. I recommend this venue for everyone!

From the moment my now husband and I walked through the door the check out the venue, we felt completely at home. Everyone there is so warm and friendly. The boats and Yacht club are so beautiful, unique, and clean, and their prices can not be beat!
We first met with John who is just the nicest, most upbeat man! He was great at helping us figuring out basic details and reccomending vendors and ideas. We had 200 guests and we ended up deciding to do Ceremony on the Fantasea One and Reception at the Yacht Club. We felt it was the perfect balance of everything. John was fantastic about answering any questions we had about the wedding details.
Our day of coordinator was Jasmine. Honestly, Jasmine alone should be the reason you book Fantasea as your wedding venue. She did not miss a single detail. She was so organized, calm, and sweet. She oversaw every detail from our ceremony and reception order, food, ordering a Challah for before dinner, coordianting with all of our vendors, placing our favors at each seat, cake topper on the cake when it arrived, our own chapagne toasting flutes at our seats ready to go, and just keeping the wedding running completely smooth and on schedule. She set up the Ketubah and the wedding Sand Ceremony under the Chuppah for the ceremony, and then moved them into the reception room and beautifully displayed them for everyone to see. During dinner she made plates for my husband and I since she knew we would not have a chance to get through the buffet line. She kept our drinks filled at all times, and descretely came and got us when it was time to start speeches, and time to cut the cake. At the end of the wedding she helped gather our gifts, leftover favors, decorations, cake topper, and champagne flutes that she knew we would want to take home and her crew helped load it into my parents car.
Overall, our wedding was a complete hit thanks to Fantasea. We got TONS of compliments on how great the food was which you rarely hear from a wedding.

I can honestly say this was the best decision I have ever made. I cant wait to work with you guys again! Highlyyy recommended!!

We debated about whether or not to have our wedding at FantaSea Yachts because of the money. We looked at many venues all over the LA area. It became clear that having it on a boat was definately something unique and beautiful. Addtionally, we did not have to search to find a coordinator and vendors, etc because they provide great people as part of their package and referrals. We went with the combination event of boat for the ceremony and pre-reception, then reception in the yacht club. When the day was over we had to agree that it was 100% the best decision we could have made. Nothing else could have been more beautiful and wonderful. We had John as our coordinator, Brad as our DJ, Andrew as our photographer and Boffo as our Videographer. This was the DREAM TEAM! These people have done these types of events for years, they know how to make everything flow and pick up the pieces when the wedding party misses something. The food was delicious, you just have to make sure you chose the right entrees and sides for your specific taste. The cake was great (and I usually HATE cake). It was moist, sweet, perfect. The ambiance (especially at sunset going into night) is so romantic and radiant - definately unforgetable. They care about you as a person, they enjoy what they do, are passionate about it! Of course they are a business trying to make money, but you don't feel like another event being processed through their system. We will forever feel close to the people at FantaSea Yachts because they really did deliver an amazing wedding where everyone had a fantastic time! I'm so grateful we found them and am already trying to figure how I can have another event there.

FantaSea gave us the happiest day of our lives! If I could give 6 stars above I would. From our first day walking into FantaSea, the staff was amazing, thorough, and responsive; we felt like family. I was called and emailed back very promptly throughout the planning process. The staff and crew took all the stress away. Their recommended vendors are so reasonable, and they are intimatly familiar with all of aspects of the yachts and club, they can paint an amzing, vivd picture for you before the day. Overall, their price was much better than many of the other venues that we researched, which were not as nice as FantaSea. We struck gold finding this place, and hope to go back for many more events through our marriage and lives!

FantaSea Yachts and the Yacht Club rocks! We did a cocktail cruise on DanDeanna and had the reception in the Yacht Club-- and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Everything went so flawless-- and all the transitions (Church, yacht, ballroom) were so smooth. I was worried about the food (because the tasting was pretty dry and bland), but on the actual day, the food was so flavorful and delicious. Guests actually told me that the food was the best food they've ever had (and not just the best wedding food). Not only did my husband and I have a magical day, but so did our guests. Everyone keeps telling us that our wedding has been one of the best. The staff at FantaSea (esp Jasmine and Leslie) know really know how to run an AMAZING reception, so that all we had to do was Enjoy the day!

Hands down the way to go for a wedding! We ABSOLUTELY LOVED our wedding planner, John. They took care of EVERY SINGLE need and did the whole shabang for us in about 7 weeks. We couldnt have felt more welcomed and taken care of than we did with FantaSea. They truly treat you like family. The RegentSea boat was beautiful and everything was perfect! From start to finish everything was perfect! I am getting goosebumbs just talking aobut how awesome they were to us! The food was delicious and the vendors they set up for us were outstanding. It makes no sense to fuss over a wedding that happens in a blink of an eye, let the team at FantaSea deal with all the nonsense and sit back and enjoy your wedding like we did! And ask for John HE IS THE BEST!
