About Charles Riverboat Co. & Cruise Boston Yacht Charters

A cruise on Boston Harbor or the Charles River is the perfect setting to host the wedding ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner or brunch of your dreams! Charles Riverboat Company and Cruise Boston offer a fleet of four vessels that offer the perfect venue for a memorable event. All charted events offer a variety of docking, catering and beverage options.

Luxury yacht Valiant is an elegant 97' vessell, unique in style to Boston Harbor. The 1920's style vessel boasts a traditional salon area with a full bar, connecting a wicker furnished fantail. A large canopy deck offers a magnificent setting for a wedding ceremony, reception, or elegant meal accommodating up to 60 guests for a seated dinner and up to 115 guests for a cocktail reception style event. Valiant departs from Rowes Wharf or Liberty Wharf. The vessel is equipped with a private bridal suite and private state rooms for the bride, groom, and wedding party!

The Lexington is authentic two-level paddle-wheel boat that accommodates parties of up to 145 guests. She has a large, open-air upper deck, as well as a covered canopy deck perfect for a fun night of dancing or an elegant reception. A lower-level salon offers a wonderful space for a buffet or plated meal.

The Charles Riverboat Company additionally offers two one level custom designed boats: the Henry Longfellow and Charles I. These vessels can accommodate up to 80 guests. Both are equipped with fully retractable windows and feature plenty of forward deck space for guests to enjoy a beautiful panoramic open-air experience. These vessels depart from the Lechmere Canal behind the CambridgeSide Galleria Mall. Alternative dockage locations are also available in the Boston and Cambridge area.

    We got married on the Valiant on 6/4/16 & LOVED it. We definitely made the right choice. The whole staff was kind, professional, responsive and so helpful in helping us put together an amazing evening, right down to personal touches such as glasses of sparkling wine for guests as they came aboard. We did the entire ceremony and reception on the Valiant, and it provided the elegant but laid-back feeling we were looking for. The amazing weather helped! Brooke did a great job keeping everyone on track for the rehearsal and she and her team made the whole night seamless and responded to a number of our requests on the fly. Highly recommended!

    We booked the Valiant for our Rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding. It exceeded our expectations - it felt like a luxury yacht and all of our guests loved it! Young and old! The staff was super friendly & the drinks and food were great!

    I didn’t work with management with regards to booking & ironing out details (the groom’s parents handled that), but the guest experience was amazing! Great sunset views made for beautiful pictures!

    My husband and I live in Boston and wanted to show our guests some of many reasons we love about this wonderful city. What better way than a private harbor cruise aboard the Lexington?

    Emily was an absolute pleasure to work with. She met us on a frigid day in February to show us the boat and calmed my nerves about the weather and waves. In the end, we had an 80 degree day at the end of September that couldn't have been more perfect. Emily was so flexible and accommodating with everything from adding craft beer to the bar menu, extending the length of the charter, to organizing the rehearsal the day before between other charters.

    The captain, crew, and servers were also wonderfully friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We have gotten so many compliments on our wedding on the Lexington; it was an absolutely extraordinary day. I cannot say enough good things about the Charles Riverboat Company and their part in that; I would recommend them to anyone.
