Pacific Yacht Charters Unveils PYC Off-the-Boat Catering for Distinctly Different On Shore Events

Pacific Yacht Charters now offers its exceptional cuisine and service to clients and event planners in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland with its new “Off-The-Boat” Catering. The new catering menu and service was officially launched today at an exclusive by invitation-only event located at LoungeWorks in Vancouver. Over 80 guests sampled tastings from Chef Mardy Ra’s five-star cuisine which are available from PYC’s Off-the-Boat Catering menu.

Established in response to numerous client requests, PYC’s Off-the-Boat Catering now offers its delicious menus for corporate catering along with social or private events anywhere throughout the lower mainland of Vancouver. Managed by David Feys, Director of Events and Operations at Pacific Yacht Charters and Executive Chef Mardy Ra, the exceptional culinary menus are available for delivery to your next event. Experts in accommodating specific dietary issues, the PYC Off-the-Boat Catering team are well versed in offering up the most delicious gluten free, dairy free, nut free, vegetarian or vegan creations to their clients.

“Extending Pacific Yacht’s reach to onshore locations has been a request from numerous clients and we have responded by successfully providing catering to over 12 offsite events prior to our official launch,” says Feys. “We are thrilled that Off-the-Boat Catering is delivering its creative cuisine and five-star service onshore ensuring these events have the most delicious and distinctly different cuisine which is key to the success of any gathering.”

David Feys joined Pacific Yacht Charters in late 2015 after running his own catering and event design business Feys + Hobbs Catered Arts for nearly twenty years in Victoria, BC. Trained as a Chef, he has honed his skills and love of event planning to providing clients with truly unique, one-of-a-kind events that reflect his love of gourmet cuisine and design.

Chef Mardy Ra and his team are highly skilled at preparing excellence in cuisine that rival the best on-land venues and catering companies. “We plan to set new standards in Vancouver catering with our unique menu options that source as many ingredients as possible from local vendors and farms,” states Chef Ra.  Chef Ra is noted for infusing Asian-inspired dishes and canapés that bring the best from today’s food trends including edible botanicals, distinctly tasteful tart flavours and inspirations from his homeland of Cambodia.
