50ft. Luxury Yacht

Surrounded by the sound of the sea, let this beautiful 50ft. Navigator be the backdrop for your beautiful burial at sea service. This smooth cruising vessel is the perfect place to celebrate a life well lived and to say your goodbyes. Offering all the comforts of home in a calming and luxurious California coastal decor. Guests love to utilize the kitchen and bar where guests can set up a memorial display and or place snacks and drinks. 

There are multiple seating areas inside, with 360 degree views of the water from everywhere you look. In addition, there is also outside seating on the flybridge or bow for those looking for some fresh air. Allowing families ultimate comfort based on their preferences.

As guests approach the scattering point they make their way to the back of the boat. They say their guiding words and the deckhand assists the family with the lowering of the ashes. Upon the return guests enjoy a tranquil and comfortable journey back to the dock.

The service allows for the scattering of one set of human remains. For an additional scattering there is an administration fee of $155.

To be able to perform the service we will require an LA County Disposition of Human Remains Permit.  You can get this from the crematory or from the LA Vital Records Office.

Client reviews

We chartered a yacht to Catalina through Los Angeles Yacht Charter for a burial at sea for my mother.

Whether you are looking for a burial at sea or something more fun, I can’t recommend this group highly enough.

Yesterday I had my father’s memorial service on one of their yachts.

They made the whole process very easy and stress-free. The crew were nice and respectful to all of my guests. I would use them again.

Our trip to scatter ashes of my two sisters was beyond our expectations. Our Captain, Gary, was on time, courteous, respectful and friendly. His partner, Terri was delightful! She seemed to anticipate our every need. I would highly recommend this charter if looking for a lovely, dignified burial at sea.

How many times do we lose a mom? How much experience did I have in doing what she asked me to do? Scatter her ashes into the sea. Grieving her loss and running around not knowing what to do, I finally put my trust in Los Angeles Yacht Charter to take us to where we needed to go and do what we needed to do. So glad that I did. From the minute I emailed them, they've been very responsive, supportive and patient with me until the end. Mom's ceremony went beautifully. A very respectful goodbye to our beloved mom. The captain and crew were very kind, supportive and courteous, understanding fully that they're taking care of grieving people. I'm eternally thankful to this company and would recommend it to anybody who's looking for a professional team to handle their events. P.S. releasing doves was a big hit with the guests, and they looked great in the video we made later.

Captain Troy and Dan were very professional and helpful in guiding us through the process as this had been our first time scattering ashes. They helped make the day easier to get through.

We needed a boat for my Fathers burial at sea and LA yacht charter made it so easy for my family to get a boat ready in the harbor we wanted. Anyone looking for a service like this or for any other service I will recommend LA yacht Charter to them.
