If you choose not to charter a yacht privately during the F1 race weekend, you can still secure yourself a spot at the heart of the action with an exclusive hospitality package on board a superyacht.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix provides an excellent opportunity to soak up the atmosphere from the comfort of a superyacht, with the Formula 1 racing circuit winding its way directly around Yas Marina. If you’d like to step on board a yacht, there are now plenty of events companies offering exclusive hospitality packages hosted on board superyachts over the F1 race weekend.
Among the benefits of the hospitality packages, many of them provide highly-sought after trackside berths to enjoy the action from; read our article about how to choose from track view and non-track view berths.
These package deals give you the opportunity to step on board a superyacht usually berthed in a premium trackside location, providing incredible views of the cars tearing past during the races. Guests will enjoy gourmet cuisine and complimentary beverages, with live coverage of the races shown throughout the yacht.
World-class service will be supplied by the crew, and the superyacht will make the perfect setting for socialising with other like-minded people and revelling in the buzzing atmosphere. Additionally, these hospitality package will often include an exclusive Q+A session with an F1 star.
Access to the superyacht across the F1 race weekend will vary according to the type of hospitality package you purchase. There are usually separate packages available on Saturday and Sunday, and sometimes there is an additional Friday brunch option. However, accommodation is not provided in any of the package deals.
As the races draw to a close, many of the superyachts lined up along the docks will play host to spectacular F1 after-parties. Premium food and beverages will be supplied, with live entertainment from DJ’s setting the tone for an evening of festivities.
An after-party package deal will mean you can enjoy a night of partying with other Grand Prix-attendees, rubbing shoulders with celebrities and high-net-worth individuals and taking advantage of the open bar. Sunday night’s yacht parties are usually particularly popular, as the night marks the grand finale of the entire Formula 1 season.
There are usually separate packages available for Saturday and Sunday nights. However, neither package will include accommodation on board the yacht.
