A guide illuminates points of interest along the shoreline while a DJ spins music to set the mood on board. The boat’s cash bar and complimentary appetizers ensures guests stay hydrated and emboldens quiet types to try semaphore flirting.<p>

"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.
