Walker's Marine Christening - Ft. Myers Beach Oct. 2017 


 A Ceremonial Boat Christening

On behalf of The Walker Marine Group, we would like to share in the celebration of your new boat by inviting you to participate in a traditional boat christening ceremony. This time-honored tradition is a fun way to formally name your boat, celebrate the occasion with family and friends, and ensure safe passages for a lifetime of adventures on the water.

The Christening ceremonial process has been a mariner’s tradition for thousands of years and it entails the following:

  • A toasting speech to honor your new vessel's name with the traditional drink of a divine red wine or a drink of your choice.

  • The breaking of a marine-certified Christening bottle on the bow of your boat or pouring the liquid on the bow.

  • The placement of fresh green leaves to symbolize a safe return.

  • The embark of a small maiden voyage with your guests.

You will have the opportunity to share this experience with other new boat owners. The ceremony gathering will take place on the docks followed by a cocktail hour and ending with the voyage of your boat.

Walker’s Marine will provide the all supplies needed for the Christening as well as specialty wines and light hors d'oeuvre for you to enjoy. If you prefer, you may bring along a special drink for your party. We will provided 6 invitation cards for you to distribute to your guests. If you would like any other special arrangements for your party, feel free to contact us, as we will do our best to honor your request.

We hope you can be a part of this wonderful celebration. Please Register by October 18th, 2017. You may contact our Events Coordinater, Kellie Walker Nidweski, with the information below.
