The Yacht Week has unveiled the world’s first floating dance floor, and we are hyped for its replication.
Do you remember that dream of being able to dance on water? Dream no more, as it is now a reality.
The team behind The Yacht Week have developed the buoyed stage, which is so big that they had to register it as a vessel with local authorities. The organizers of the weeklong nautical music festival experience had tested the stage in Croatia earlier this summer when the anchor dropped and locked alongside the Buzz Boat, the brand’s high-tech floating DJ booth.
The 60-square meter dancefloor, which can hold about 80 people, is built from durable PEHD plastic with a hardwood flooring deck. Once towed out to sea, the stage is then anchored to the seafloor in between two rows of yachts, offering a “floating festival.”
“We’ve been putting on epic parties as part of The Yacht Week experience for a long time, but we’re always looking to innovate and push things to the next level,” said The Yacht Week co-founder Johan Kuylenstierna. “First, we created the ‘Buzz’, and we could see how much our guests loved real DJ sets out at sea, but they could never really come together and dance like they could at a club. The floating dance floor has changed all that. There’s no party like this one anywhere in the world, so we’re looking forward to some incredible moments next summer.”
If you are as hyped as us about trying the floating stage, then you will be able to visit its public event debut next year. The floating dance floor will be appearing on The Yacht Week’s Croatia sailing routes.
