With more than 25 years of achievements in the luxury yacht and hospitality industries, Steven Tanzman has a rare depth of experience in the flawless execution of one-of-a-kind elegant events. Founded in 2003, his company, Yacht Events LLC, coordinates five-star cuisine, service and staged entertainment aboard world-class yachts along the East Coast. Clients and guests include billionaire George Soros, mogul Donald Trump, fashion icon Donna Karan, the Saudi Arabian Royal family, United Nations ambassadors and several world champion NFL-NBA-NHL and MLB teams. As president of Yacht Events, Mr. Tanzman regularly navigates the course separating success from failure, where months or sometimes years of planning come down to a few hours with countless details perfectly executed. He always meets the challenge, whether it’s a private yacht sailing to an unconventional docking spot or hundreds of staff and rentals coordinated and brought to an island accessible only by ferry. His events range from small family or corporate celebrations to large galas with over 2,000 guests. Clients praise Mr. Tanzman for being “beyond accommodating,” “thoroughly professional,” “exceeding expectations” and having a calming presence under pressure while coordinating the many moving parts that contribute to a successful event. Catering Trends Magazine named him “one of the leading consultants in the hospitality industry.”…
Established in 2003.
While still as a sales manager in early 2003, Steven Tanzman expanded his catering experience and created “Yacht Events LLC.”, specializing in event planning for both social and corporate clients. Although New York \ New Jersey is not lacking in this area, what sets us apart from all others is that the staff of Yacht Events are all former caterers representing the client’s best interests. As independent representatives, we now have the ability to further provide enhanced services to our clients. When our fleet is fully booked, and/ or a privately owned yacht is a better fit for a clients needs, we provide that extended service. Our yachts for charter are perfect for any event from 20-1200 guests. We offer a diverse style to accommodate our client’s individual taste and preferences.
