Boat Launches

It's time to celebrate having your new boat by having a "christening ceremony". Ships have been christened throughout the centuries, with the intention that a proper christening and the accompanying celebrations ensures good fortune to the lady and her crew throughout the life of the vessel.

You invite everyone to the christening who is important to the boat. The celebrant will conduct a ceremony which will incorporate the Naming, blessing and toasting of the boat and its crew. Together we will create a personal and memorable ceremony, which celebrates your boat and those that are important to it.

The Toast

"TO THE SEA...TO THE SAILORS BEFORE US...TO (the name of your boat)."

Champagne will be poured over the bow to appease King Neptune, and you will lay a branch of green leaves on the deck to ensure safe returns.
