I got married on October 1 on the Duchess of Pintail. It was a beautiful venue and planning it was extremely easy. Stephanie was easy to work with. I realized over time that the pricing that I was promised had many things missing and the estimates I received were way off. The bar bill estimate was $1800-$2000. My bill was $4200! I was floored. Then on top of that, they charged tax and service fees of $1000!!! So I ended up paying a total of $15500 for 85 people for 4 hours. $175 pp. That was crazy. We were working to have my costs be about $100 pp. My advice to you is to get EVERYTHING itemized and in the contract ahead of time. I am still talking to them about how outrageous the costs were. They said 90% had mixed drinks. I spoke to many guests and that wasn't what I was hearing. Again, get all numbers up front and understand what you are paying for. It was a real bummer to an otherwise awesome wedding.

We chose pintail yatchs for our wedding because we thought it would be something different for our guests to enjoy. We had most of our guests coming from out of town, so this would be a nice event that allows them to see the beaty of Annapolis and enjoy the water. Also, we booked because they had a fantastic November discount special that included food, bar, everything, so for us it simplified the whole process because we didn't need to hire a caterer or bartenders on our own. Our wedding coordinator, Krystal, was so easy to work with, was very responsive to all my questions, phone calls and emails. She offered to help us with anything we needed with planning, but we did not really take her up on the offer. I never would have hired a wedding coordinator on my own, but Krystal came as part of the package, and I am so glad we had her. I didn't realize how important it is to have someone there the day of running the show, keeping things on schedule and going smoothly, but it is. We didn't have to worry about a thing, she did it all and we just relaxed and had a great time. The boat is beautiful and didn't require any extra decorations, which saved us money (I didn't even buy my own centerpieces but just used the silk ones they already have) and hassle. We literally just showed up and had a good time and didn't have to worry about set-up, or clean-up. The evening went so well, and we had such a wonderful time, I highly recommend any event with Pintail Yatchs.

To anyone looking to do something a little different for their wedding...I HIGHLY recommend using Pintail Yachts. Katie Sullivan-Wildt was my wedding coordinator and I could not have asked for better service! She was always there to answer my (often crazy) questions and had great recommendations on the flow and decor of my night. The boats are all beautiful and the staff are friendly and accomodating. Plus, you can't beat the view! My guests are still talking about how much they loved being on the boat for the reception!

Our wedding was truly MAGICAL. We had wanted to get married on a boat because of our love for dinner cruises. The Washington DC metro area offers many options for getting married on a boat/yacht. We visited many, but as soon as we stepped aboard the Duchess of Pintail, we knew this is where we wanted to get married.

The boat is beautiful and sailed the Baltimore Harbor. The staff aboard the boat was professional and friendly. A captain married us aboard the boat and we were just blown away by how perfect everything was!

Katie, who was our wedding coordinator for the Duchess, was a dream to work with. She is knowledgeable, patient, and very responsive. We booked our date very early on because it was 08-08-08 and we knew that it would be a big date for weddings. Katie was easy to work with, and kept us on the ball for everything. She can do anything!

We don't want to disclose exactly how much we spent but compared to other reception sites, the Duchess was extremely competitive and actually came a lot of what we consider lesser venues.

Two of the other vendors we used also came from the Pintail's recommendations - the caterer (Ken's Creative) and the cake (Sugar Bakers). We looked around a little bit for the cake, and we only tried Ken's Creative once, and then we were sold.

We used the Duchess and worked with Katie for our wedding last summer. Everyone LOVED the whole night... we used Ken's Creative Kitchen and the food was fantastic. People are still talking about how great the food was and how much they loved the atmosphere of the yacht. Katie was always quick to answer my 500 questions and was so patient with us coordinating our day from out of town. The staff was professional and friendly... I can't say enough about the whole evening. We were so happy with everything and have so many fun memories of the whole day.

The quality of service was exceptional, including the wonderful flexibility of the staff even if they had to stay late or come out on a Saturday, the responsiveness was exceptional and my calls or e-mails were returned in literally an hour or less, the professionalism was unmatched and I never felt uncomfortable discussing money and my limitations as I was unemployed at the time and was paying for my own wedding, they were never pushy or rude like some wedding places can be and they were never condescending when discussing my dreams for my perfect wedding day. The value for the cost was exceptional. How can you replace a beautiful, clean, modern boat with professional crew? My mother-in-law said that it was so clean that when she took her shoes off her socks didn't even get dirty!

We held our reception on board the Duchess and left from Baltimore. Our guests were literally amazed at how amazing the experience was and how beautiful all of the details and small touches were. I was very laid back in planing my wedding and Katie, our wedding planner took care of EVERYTHING for me. She was absolutely amazing and even picked up flowers for the ceremony site (Pier 5) the day before our wedding. It was the easiest wedding ever to plan and the final result was awesome! Katie has such good relationships with the other vendors and everyone that she recommended did a wonderful job.

I would highly recommend Pintail Yachts and Katie for anyone's wedding.

We used the Duchess as our ship of choice, although quite beautiful, there was some issues with arrangements during the actual ceremony & reception.
We were married by the Captain, who was quite proffessional (we would have however preferred if he'd memorised instead of read what was to be said)
We also hired Pintail's wedding co-ordinator, which unfortunately was quite a dissapointment, since it seemed she had no ideas what the pre-agreed arrangements were.
The main co-ordinator (Katie) was more then perfect in the onset of the arrangements, but was AWOL during the event.
