If you think that having a party on a private yacht is something only worthy of Crazy Rich Asians – you’re only half right. It’s fancy but it turns out it can also be pretty affordable if you’re aboard The Admiral Yacht that’s docked at Marina at Keppel Bay.
From just $75/pax, the yacht will give you and your pals a taste of the rich and famous life while cruising along the southern islands of Singapore. Read on to see what’s in store for your next party.
It’s not everyday you think about chartering a yacht for your family and friends but it’s really the next best option for an intimate yet lavish party. From dark wood furnishings to a leather-clad L-seatee, The Admiral’s indoor saloon will make you feel like you’re in a classy lounge.
Within it, you’ll also find a separate dinette and kitchenette that comes complete with kitchen equipment and a refrigerator.
To revel in the sea breeze, head to the yacht’s outdoor decks. There’s a main deck right outside the saloon, and if you want a better view of your surroundings, go up to the flybridge deck and chill at its spacious sitting area. You can also lay down at the front deck to work on your tan.
Whether you’re having a seafaring-themed party, or an elegant evening in mind, Marina at Keppel Bay has different types of itineraries for you to choose from. You can set sail towards the white sandy beaches of Singapore’s southern islands, or have a sunset cruise and see the coastline at night.

Their Day Cruise will bring you to the likes of Lazarus Island, where you can hop off the yacht and go for a swim. While you’re here, stretch your legs by exploring other neighbouring islands like St John’s Island, known for its relatively untouched natural state, and its community of tame cats.
If you prefer to have a more swanky evening, their Sunset Cruise sets the mood for a sophisticated party. You’ll sail towards Sentosa, just in time for the fireworks display from the “Wings of Time” show.

While you’re out at sea, you can maximize those holiday vibes by having a grill-out – just bring your own ingredients and make use of the onboard barbecue grill. But if your cooking skills are limited to YouTube-ing how-to videos, you also have the option of adding on a buffet package to feed everyone.

While you’re out at sea, you’ll also have the option to explore the islands on the 2 kayaks provided on the yacht. And if you’re going to chill on the beach while you’re here, grab some of the beach toys that are included as well.
Add in some extra entertainment in the form of a karaoke system to celebrate in style.
Priced from $750/package, The Admiral at Marina at Keppel Bay will leave you and your gang of up to 10 pax drippin’ with finesse, whether you choose to have a fun day out at sea or an elegant evening with your friends.
You can also look forward to beach activities once the yacht docks at the Southern Islands, as well as some scenic views as it cruises along the southern islands. With decks where you can bask in the sun plus an air-conditioned indoor saloon for a comfy cruise, you’ll have more than enough space to host a next-level celebration.
