Melbourne Dj Hire regularly work on party boats in Melbourne, there are actually quite a few of them around in the Docklands area and the boats travel around the central pier all the way out to the bay. Some of Melbourne Dj Hires clients who regularly organise events for their company sometimes ask us about suggestions on where to throw a party and for something very affordable with a huge wow factor we always suggest organising an event on a boat. It is something different and you can easily throw in a party theme like James Bond or Great Gatsby.
With a party boat guests need to arrive at the location before the event starts so they can board the boat. Usually the boats will wait 15 minutes for any late comers but anything after that the guests will have to miss the ship. We have worked at a party boat event where some staff members were shift workers and the boat came back to the dock to pick those guests up which is also an option.You can also hire external caterers to come onto the party boat, there are professional kitchens set up and some companies even set up one level of the boat as a sit down dining area. One party boat our Melbourne DJ worked at also arranged to bring in their own pizzas as their catering and spent the whole budget on the bar. It was a uni booze cruise with a late start so a lot of the students had already had dinner and they just came onto the boat to party.
The dance floor is always a hit as well, Melbourne DJ hire have noticed that because there is limited space on a boat and its got such a cozy and tight vibe once people start dancing then everyone else will join in. Usually a party boat will have 2 levels, one level people can sit and chat and the level with the Melbourne DJ is just non stop dancing.
