The handpicked hosts that preside over bashes by Singles Boat Party—a brainchild of the founders of NY Minute Dating—pair up hundreds of 20-, 30-, and 40-somethings during four-hour circumnavigations of Manhattan. From spring to fall, they plant seeds of camaraderie with icebreakers and prize giveaways as servers circulate complimentary hors d'oeuvres and barkeeps dole out drinks at a cash bar. Later, hosts pass the entertaining torch to DJs that spin pulsing beats all night, catering to those inclined to let their hips do the talking instead of the parrot on their shoulder. Dancing is an integral component of each bash, but some are also guided by themes, such as Hawaiian Luau and I Love the '80s.
