Three Hour Charter on the Golden Swan

Private three hour charter on the Golden Swan

Ideal for birthdays, vow renewals, staff functions, and themed events, our Golden Swan offers a memorable sailing on a 1950's river cruiser. The Golden Swan still has all the facilities you need including an enclosed lower deck and an upper deck with some open air and shade sail covered seating. There is a licensed bar on board, two bathrooms, and a smart phone compatible sound system through out. 


The Golden Swan can cater to 60 people cocktail style, or 45 guests seated. There are 10 tables that seat between 3 and 6 guests each located on the lower deck. These tables can be rearranged to suit your event, or you are also welcome to dress the boat and bring your own equipment on board.
The upper deck has two lounge areas (one under the shade sail and one at the rear of the deck in the open air) as well as bar tables and stools along both side rails.
