LONDON: City Cruises has acquired its first dedicated events boat, named the Erasmus. The 300-capacity boat is City Cruises only private-hire corporate and leisure event venue in London.
The 38-metre vessel has several versatile indoor and outdoor spaces including, three alfresco decks, a formal 130-seater dining space with booth and table seating, plus a large inside mid-deck room which increases the inside vessel capacity to 300 guests.
The flexibility and technology capabilities of the boat allow event organisers to host corporate product launches, award ceremonies, company gatherings and personal celebrations from weddings to birthday parties.
Erasmus’ galley and kitchen team will cater to a wide variety of dining styles, from casual fare to canapés, fine dining and upper deck BBQs during the summer months.
Kyle Haughton, managing director of City Cruises, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome the Erasmus in to our London fleet today because we have seen a growing demand for private hire among the corporate and leisure market.
“The boat’s flexible space, layout and contemporary interior design made the Erasmus the perfect fit for City Cruises.
“Existing team members will staff the new boat, but we will be recruiting for additional team members to join our family in the future.
