Eating on a yacht can be quite different from eating on land. Mostly, meals involve not staying still the majority of the time with the yacht in constant movement. Plus, there are many different safety regulations that have to be considered.
Meanwhile, though space is slightly limited compared to your own home kitchen or usual dine-in restaurant – it’s still completely possible to make your boat charter experience interesting with food!
Pasta is a dish that is easy to prepare and can feed a whole army. Whether you choose spaghetti, penne, or macaroni, it’s an easy boil in a pot and viola. Add ready-made pasta sauce to the mix, some fresh herbs, and you’ve got yourself a delicious meal!
Fruit serves as a great healthy snack throughout the day. Furthermore, they can be kept cool in the refrigerator without and are excellent grab-and-go alternatives.
Some great picks include bananas, apples, and peaches which work perfectly as daily snacks. If you want to put more effort into it, you can cut watermelon, papaya, and pineapple into small cubes.
Afterwards, just put the cubes in sealable airtight containers and take out from the fridge for enjoyment when you’re ready to dig in!
Burgers and fries
When you want to make a quick warm meal, you can use the cruise grill for cooking hot dogs or burger patties. It’s important to consider safety when you take on this task, but most yacht rentals do have installed grills that work with gas and use a series of safety precautions.
Pop frozen fries into the oven or boil in hot oil as a great accompaniment. Don’t forget tomato sauce and mustard as a relish or maybe even salsa.
Tacos are easy to make and can be eaten by hand, avoiding dishes getting piled up, making it especially ideal for an event such as a yacht birthday party!
Cook some minced meat in a pan with onions, and put it on a taco with lots of cheese, jalapenos, and tomato salsa. Put some sour cream in a glass bowl and let your guests dip into the bowl if they want to.
If you want to go all Mexican – you can grab some nachos and smother them in cheese sauce, guacamole, tomato salsa, and finely chopped chilli.
Prepare ready-made sandwiches at home and take them along for the trip! You can make a variety of sandwiches and keep them in the refrigerator until the next day or even the day after.
Topping choices can include Peanut butter and jelly, ham and cheese, and scrambled egg and mayonnaise.
Apart from fruity snacks, you can prepare other easy-to-grab snacks like homemade muffins, nut mix, gummy bears, dried fruits, cookies, and granola bars. Having different kinds of sugary snacks will give guests a boost of energy whenever they need it.
Remember that no yacht charter is complete with a series of drinks. It’s important that you take along more than enough fresh water and juice. If you are going for a romantic steak dinner at night, then don’t forget the champagne and wine.
Meanwhile, if it’s a family trip and there’s going to be kids around, or you’ll be inviting your Muslim friends aboard – then, it’s best to keep your choice of drinks non-alcoholic!
As for your private yacht rental – no matter what kind of event you have in mind, these different yummy goodies will be sure to fit in perfectly! Meanwhile, if it’s a corporate event or one involving your clients – you may have to consider bringing in other elevated dishes. So, assess the situation carefully and make the right catering choice!
