In the business of providing private yacht charters and rentals in the Chesapeake Bay area for over 45 years, Wedding on the Bay by Watermark® is home to all things weddings. Our luxury yachts offer stunning, magical settings for weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, proposals, and more. Simply choose your dream waterfront wedding venue from our entire fleet of pristine vessels offering flexible floor plans and spacious indoor and outdoor areas suitable for your nuptials, not to mention full-service bars and catering kitchens.

Our home ports include Annapolis City Dock and the Baltimore Inner Harbor, though we have docking privileges throughout the region. Watermark’s personal wedding coordinator will guide you through the process of planning your special day on the water. Yacht weddings offer a unique, refreshing alternative to more traditional wedding venues on land.

Waterfront wedding

A Breathtaking Waterfront Backdrop

Imagine celebrating your special day on the open-air deck of a private yacht with the Chesapeake Bay, historic Annapolis, the Eastern Shore or the beautiful Baltimore skyline as your backdrop. We think every couple should work the water into their wedding festivities in some way. Our yachts are the most flexible event venues around, suitable for any event outside of the wedding reception itself. We’ve helped countless couples celebrate their rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, bachelor and bachelorette parties, next-day brunches, and even after-parties long after the reception.
