Choosing Between Party Boat or a Party Barge, what is the difference?


Large Party Boat Rentals are basically 2 categories:

Large Party Boats / Barges rated 1 to 50 passengers


Larger Party Boats / Barges rated over 51 passengers -

Boat prices increase 3 to 4 times when you rent a boat that can carry over 50 passengers.


Shopping for a large Party Boat? What are you really getting for your money?

Large Party Boats come in different sizes and styles in the Dallas, Fort Worth, DFW, Texas Area: Motor Boats, Sail Boats and Barges, rated for 20, 50 or 100+ passengers. Hulls are single hull (mono-hull) or multi-hulls (Catamarans), with Catamarans being the most stable and smoothest ride. Barges in this area use square dock flotation to float the craft, making it very slow, causing it to be restricted to one area, or spending all your time just getting somewhere. Individuals or businesses with a 30' boat or larger for hire with a driver have legal requirements--min. $300,000 in liability insurance, boat / vessel must be inspected every year by TWPD, a State of Texas Commercial Party Boat Operator's License or US Coast Guard Captain License by one of the crew, all crew must have the boater's safety certificate, 1 crewman required per 25 passengers, life vests for all passengers and crew plus safety equipment.

Ask to see their license, go in confidence safety should be number 1.

This boat is the best boat for groups of 50 - 100 people. High winds? Not to worry as the boat is designed for the ocean, and the driver is a USCG-certified Captain.  No wind, no problem with twin engines. When spending more money on a larger vessel and organizing this large of a group, you want to know they won't cancel your reservation when other companies have to because it is unsafe to go out with high winds and waves on others' smaller boats.

There is a boat for everyone or every event, the choice is yours:

Don't care all you want to do is go a short distance off shore, swim, get drunk, rough house and Do Not expect to cruise around or need anything nice, The Barge will work, it is very basic. Be realistic...if a 40' party barge only has a single engine and square dock blocks for floatation, don't be surprised or get mad that it is slow (even when empty) and found a short distance from their dock, it is a floating dock and not designed to go anywhere far from the docks.

BUT if you want to look good, have nice, safe, clean equipment and cruise around the lake and make a good impression to friends and family, then a Party Boat will work for you. Either Way Enjoy and Be Safe on Our Lakes.


Don't Be The Pain In The Boat!

Most companies are trying to make an honest living with a large investment and liability. Unruly behavior, confrontation with any crew member, fighting, jumping off the boat without the crew’s permission, drunk and disorderly conduct, trashing of the boat or equipment, etc. Is Not Tolerated and can result in early termination of the charter and you lose your money.


What is the difference between Party Boats and Party Barges?

Party Boats / Yachts are Safe, Catamarans being the safest and most stable and can go out on windy days, more upscale, classy, have more amenities and Can Cruise around the lake with Single or Twin Engines, Sail or a combination of Sail w/engine. Clean toilets, nice flooring & built-in seats with party lights for night-time cruising. Dallas has an average of 11 miles per hour of wind each day, making motor or sail catamarans the best choice, safest and least likely to cancel your trip. Do you want to look good, cruise around the lake in a safe and stable boat and make a good impression to friends and family or maybe you want to cruise to the party cove to swim and not spend all you time getting there. Make a good impression to friends and family, then this is the boat for you. Great For Entertaining!


Party Barges, these are basically homemade, a very slow-moving floating dock and in this area a single 60 or 90Hp engine--very basic and not impressive but it floats. The radio may or may not work (might have to bring your own). Be realistic if a 40' party barge only has a single 60 or 90Hp engine, square blocks for floatation and 30 - 50 people onboard don't be surprised or get mad that it is slow, it is a floating dock and not designed to go anywhere. These barges are usually found a short distance from their dock or a lot of time is spent just getting somewhere. Seating is on plastic chairs that can break or tip over. Water laps over the floatation or the front of the craft, getting people wet. They have double decks and allow people to jump off the top, think about it you have been drinking, stairs get wet and the waves rocking the craft and you are falling up or down the stairs or with all the trees in the lake and you cannot see below the surface and jumping off? Don't care all you want to do is go a short distance off shore and swim, rough house and do not expect to cruise around or need anything fancy, the floating dock is best for college parties and young groups, Not Entertaining. It is what it is, a floating dock.


Large House Boat / Barge is a flat bottom boat or a barge and is restricted, these barges cannot go out on windy days(15+mph), they are very hard to control, often cancelling your trip or will just go a short distance from their dock or just stay at the dock.
