A guide illuminates points of interest along the shoreline, while a DJ spins music to set the mood on board.

"Ben Franklin Yacht"

Sunlight and moonbeams glimmer on Philadelphia harbor, where Ben Franklin Yacht glides silently to reveal a new perspective on the cradle of American democracy and replicate the freedom of the open ocean. Recently refurbished, the modern vessel hosts up to 300 guests in long, low decks whose mirrored ceilings flood the space with reflected light and expose pirates who have "Mom" tattoos hidden in their bald spots. A wooden dance floor and bar fuel parties, and knowledgeable guides propel discussion about the city's history from the breezy top deck. The majestic vessel may also be rented out for private parties. The port of departure is within walking distance of other famed sights, such as the Liberty Bell, Constitution Center, and the cherry tree from which George Washington famously crafted his wooden wig. Boarding begins approximately 30 minutes prior to each excursion.

It was a lot of fun. The weather was perfect! There was a great breeze. Gorgeous sunset! The city looks so pretty all lit up at night. Great music - lively bunch of people. The captain was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city. The DJ played great music and lots of folks danced. I loved it. It was very relaxing!
