Private Boat Cruises

Enjoy A Private Charter

Private cruises on our plush 3-level yacht include a 3-hour cruise down the Delaware River, where you get to see attractions such as the Philadelphia Skyline, Battleship New Jersey, The Moshulu, and many other scenic views along the water. In addition, we offer an excellent food menu for our customers to choose from for their buffet-style experience. It is complemented by a choice of bar packages which includes a cash bar, beer and wine, or full open bar options.

A few things to know before planning your event… There is a 50-person minimum to book a private cruise and a maximum of 259 passengers on board. In order to secure your desired date and time, an onsite visit to the boat is encouraged. If you are unable to make an in-person visit then an over-the-phone consultation discussion is required. The consultation discussion will include choosing your event packages such as food, drinks, DJ, linens, etc., which will all be detailed in your contract. Consultation hours are available on weekdays from 11 AM – 5 PM. Once a contract is agreed upon, a minimum deposit of 25% is required upon booking.

If you have any other questions or concerns please contact the Ben Franklin Yacht. We are looking forward to helping you plan out your next amazing trip on the water!
