“We recently hosted our first annual sales meeting on the Spirit of Lake Murray. We couldn’t have been happier with the first-class service, food and accommodations that was presented to us. We thoroughly enjoyed the crew and overall lake experience. I highly recommend using the Spirit for any upcoming business meetings you may have.” – Michelle Moshinskie, Director of Marketing, A3 Communications, Inc., Irmo, SC | June 2015

A meeting or get-together aboard the Spirit of Lake Murray is great for business!

Looking for a way to get your staff excited about that new company development?  Invite them aboard the Spirit to hear all about it!  Need to get your board of directors together and command their attention? Arrange for your next meeting to set sail!   Want to entertain your customers and clients in a setting that lets them know their business is meaningful and appreciated?  No one forgets the cocktail party you host on the Spirit!  Want to hold a seminar for prospective customers that they’ll WANT to attend?  You’ll see your RSVP’s skyrocket when prospects are invited for a seminar that includes a luxury yacht cruise!

The perfect place for your next business function is aboard the vessel, Spirit of Lake Murray.  Conveniently docked in Ballentine, SC, just a few miles from I-26 and Columbia, the Spirit offers all the conveniences of a typical off-site meeting facility with one big exception - it’s a luxury cruise yacht that will sail around beautiful Lake Murray as you hold your function.   The main salon quickly transforms into a seminar or meeting set-up and can include a large video screen. The Spirit’s staff will help you set the tables and seating in whatever configuration helps you achieve your goals, whether to command your guests’ attention or help them to relax and have fun. You’ll have access to the audio system so that your voice will be heard throughout the vessel.
