Events & Meetings

As one of the most active and renowned private yacht clubs in Florida, Carlouel hosts more than 200 events each year, including member parties, family and organizational gatherings, weddings and birthday parties. These include Club and member-sponsored events for groups ranging from 20 to more than 400 people. We welcome the opportunity to host events for members and guests, and are happy to plan any occasion. Although Club and member events must always be our first priority, we are usually able to accommodate private engagements.
