About Smooth Sailing Celebrations

Service Areas: New York City, New Jersey - North, NY Metro Area

We understand that you have many options for your family's celebration. If you're looking for something as unique as your family, contact us for information. We guarantee that your event will stand out in your guests' memories for many years to come long after all the other cookie-cutter events have faded away.

Please describe your business.

We have 45 Coast-Guard-Certified yachts for private events of 12 to 1,200 guests sailing year-round from NJ and NY. Our guests dine, dance, celebrate while taking in the view 15 historical landmarks & the NYC skyline while sailing down the Hudson Harbor. With 25 years’ experience, our clients include mitzvah, sweet 16, school, wedding, non-profit and corporate markets. With basic information from you, we can email menus, pricing, info & pictures of yacht options that suit your criteria & then meet with you aboard the preferred yacht to walk the space and discuss your event. Contact us for the list of Hudson Harbor landmarks. Glatt and Kosher caterers are welcomed aboard the yachts, each of which has their own galley kitchen for the Rabbi to cleanse and bless. When it’s not a Kosher-catered event, each yacht provides delicious cuisine that is prepared fresh aboard the yacht by the ship’s Executive Chef and staff in the boat’s galley kitchen.

What makes you unique?

With 45 yachts in our fleet with a variety of layouts, we have something to suit all size groups. We are very quick to respond to all clients with honest, detailed and knowledgeable responses. We are very proud of our sterling reputation in our industry & love what we do each day. Our yachts include so much in their packages that all a client needs to provide is music, photographer and sometimes a florist – a number of yachts even include centerpieces. A yacht is not just a venue – it’s an experience in a fun, festive and glamorous atmosphere.

What can people expect when they hire you for their child's Bar/Bat Mitzvah?

They can expect a work ethic that is honest, reliable, talented, creative, knowledgeable and responsive to their needs. They can also expect to work exclusively with our owner, Camille Cerria, who started this woman-owned enterprise 15 years ago. She herself is the mother of 2 daughters who have had their own Sweet 16s and a wedding (and a future wedding!) aboard the yachts. They can expect not just a venue, but an experience in a fun, festive and glamorous atmosphere.

Camille and Dorit, Thank you SO much for everything you did to help make our special occasion such a memorable one! You ladies are a great team, amazing at what you do and your calm demeanor throughout the process made it so much easier for us! And I got SO many compliments on the great venue, sightseeing and the delicious food. We lucked out by finding Camille and your amazing boat. Thank you so much! I hit the jackpot when I called you over a year ago for the first time!

I hope all is well and please accept our long overdue but heartfelt thanks for the stunning job you did for our 9/8 wedding. We had no idea how to prepare a yacht wedding at the very start. It was you helping us out whatever was needed in the past few months that took so much stress off of us. You always gave us responses quickly and helped us find the best solutions to the problems during the preparation of the wedding. We couldn't have done it without your help. The wedding was truly magical, amazing and was everything we had envisioned. Many of our guests said that it was one of the most wonderful weddings that they have been to! You made our special day perfect, and we can't thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedication. We have and will continue to recommend your service to our friends who are interested in having an event on a yacht.

Everything was perfect! Thank you so much! The kids had soooo much fun - as usual! And I love the new deck furniture. Everything was fabulous. Our new maitre'd was so wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Expert Advice From Smooth Sailing Celebrations

We hear a lot of concern about "getting seasick", however, it's not a reality. Our yachts have been specially designed with stabilizers and built for milestone events. The Hudson is a river, not the ocean. As such, it's a very smooth sail. However, we do recognize the fact that motion sickness is a reality that some clients have in their lives, even when they are in cars. For those clients with a true sensitivity, we recommend a wonderful homeopathic remedy: candied or crystallized ginger which can be found in the produce section of any supermarket. Here's the trick: 2 pieces must be ingested 1/2 hour before boarding the boat. This allows guests to drink and won't interfere with any meds they are on - and it really works! A big bag comes with individually packaged small bags for $3. Clients often include a small bag with their invitations to guests.
