Season's Greetings

Wishing You The Best Of The Holiday Season!!!

As the holidays are upon us full swing now, we at Del Rio's Yachts would like to take this time to acknowledge a very special group of people....YOU!  All of the wonderful individuals who receive our monthly email blasts month after month, year after year in support of a business enterprise that I envisioned years ago and continue to build and grow with all of your ongoing support.

The great thing about the holidays is that it is often a time of reflecting and giving. We've already reflected on the importance of people like you in helping a small business like mine, now we'd like to give back to those who want to put that support in motion. For any Cruises booked with Del Rio's Yachts during the months of December and January by someone in your network, not only will we give a 5% discount to the booking party, but we'll also give YOU a $100 referral fee in the form of a MC/Visa gift card to help you with some of those holiday purchases that we know you've got coming up!  Just have your friend or family member provide your name and email address at the time of a confirmed booking and we'll send your gift card off to you.  That's're on your way to the mall!

Just another way that Del Rio's Yachts is supporting the community that supports our business.  We appreciate you and wish you all the happiness and joy that the spirit of the Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Years and Three Kings holidays represent.  Looking forward to even bigger and better things in 2015 than this year, and we're excited that you're on the journey with us!

Happy Cruisegiving!!!

Happy Cruisegiving!!!

Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. It became an official Federal holiday in 1863, when, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens," to be celebrated on Thursday, November 26. Also, there are reports that the original Thanksgiving proclamation was signed by George Washington. As a federal and public holiday in the U.S., Thanksgiving is one of the major holidays of the year. Together with Christmas and New Year, Thanksgiving is a part of the broader holiday season, so it's definitely time to think about ways that you can give thanks for another year of life and productivity.  So what better way to do so than to give a cruise that includes all your favorite colleagues, clients and business associates?

The "traditional" office parties around this time of year can get old real quick.  After you do the same old potluck dinners, eat more leftovers than you know you should and start having the regrets later, one thing we're sure you won't regret is an exciting Del Rio Holiday Cruise.  You can have your DJ, holiday festive menu and drinks galore to celebrate on water rather than another stuffy bar, dark restaurant or overpriced catering hall.  Create a holiday memory that's sure to last year round by contacting us today to help you plan a dynamic event unlike any you've ever done before!

In closing, we at Del Rio's Yachts would also like to take this opportunity to give you, our thousands of supporters, patrons and friends for your past support and continued business patronage in the year ahead.  Happy Cruisegiving...the new way to both give and receive thanks from those who you want to remind how special they are to you and/or your business this time of year!

Happy All Hallow's Eve!!!

Happy All Hallow's Eve!!!

As the Summer sets behind us and we look ahead to the Fall, this time of year brings about a pleasant reminder of the change in nature's "seasons" as we also gear up for the holiday "season."

Dating back as far as one can remember, typical festive traditions usually kicked off the season with Halloween activities which included trick-or-treating, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing,telling scary stories, and watching horror films. In some parts of the world, on "All Hallow's Eve" they even still recognize the ancient tradition of visiting cemeteries and lighting candles on the graves of family and friends.

But that was back we have Halloween Costume Party Cruises on the enchanting seas of the Hudson while viewing the dynamic and ever-growing NYC skyline!  You and your friends or colleagues should be howling at the moon, while dancing to some "Thriller" type music until your bones start to ache.  Bloody Mary's will be on deck, or whatever beverage that will quench your carnivorous thirst.  Dine on some of the best and freshest food that you can find on water, without having to sail to the Caribbean to get the foody experience of a lifetime.  Del Rio's Yachts can make your next office party or Halloween Fright Fest a night to remember!  Call us today and we'll scare up a menu and itinerary that you'll love at prices that will shock you to death...and back!  Happy All Hallow's Eve to all our loyal friends and supporters, we're looking forward to "hanging" with you this Halloween season!

Happy Labor Day!!

Happy Labor Day!!!

Labor Day in the US is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American Labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.  Labor Day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first parade in New York City. In 1887, it was established as an official holiday in September to support the Labor Day that the Knights favored.
Labor Day has come to be celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer. In high society, Labor Day is (or was) considered the last day of the year when it is fashionable to wear white[or seersucker. Also In the United States, many school districts resume classes around the Labor Day holiday weekend. Most begin the week before, making Labor Day weekend the first three-day weekend of the school calendar, while others return the Tuesday following Labor Day, allowing families one final get away before the school year begins. Speaking of which, this can also be your chance to "get away" on the high seas by getting ready to say goodbye to summer and hello to the Fall when taking a Del Rio's Yachts cruise.  It's not too late to take advantage of the great weather we're still having, while capturing the essence of what summer is all about, good times, great fun and a celebration of family, friends and colleagues.

So give us a call today and take a break from your "labors" to enjoy a cruise around the Hudson with those you enjoy spending time with the most.  We're looking forward to hearing from you soon.  Until then, enjoy the remainder of your summer...

Summer Is Still Here

Summer Is Still Here!!!

Summer is Still Here, but will Soon be Gone!

Who can remember that treacherous winter we had?! Twas not so long ago,
Colds and the flu, chills and frost, and giant mounds of snow.

Well, sorry to tell you this good friends, but before you blink your eyes and look around again,
The trees will be changing colors and shortly thereafter become baron.

We're now at that halfway point, as August is upon us,
Enjoying what's left of the summer to the fullest, is no longer an option but a must!

So before it's too late you need to be making plans,
For how you can get the best out of the rest of this summer, man!

We know you have tons of options that you could ultimately choose,
But nothing says "Summer Fun" like a Summertime Cruise!

You can sail around the city on one of our luxury liners,
Many have searched for better, but eventually concluded that there are none finer.

Than one of our dynamic Del Rio's Yachts that can cater to your every wish,
Where we always provide an awesome atmosphere, while you enjoy some wine and your favorite dish. 

So gather your colleagues, family and friends to cruise with us, but be sure you don't take too long,
Because although Summer is still here, one thing is for sure, it will soon be gone!

Happy 4th Of July

Happy Independence Day
Did you know that Independence Day, July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941?  However, the tradition of Independence Day celebrations actually go as far back as the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary struggle weighed a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with typical festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.
At Del Rio's Yachts we would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Happy Independence Day!  Whether you're grilling in the park/backyard, catching some much needed rest or enjoying the fireworks displays in the City, please remember that we're one of those options that you can take advantage of also, to celebrate your special occasions with us.  Celebrate your own "independence" from the hustle and bustle of every day city life by taking a relaxing cruise with those who mean the most to you or your colleagues that you'd love to get some down time with.  Thanks for your past support and we're looking forward to serving you in the near future!
