River Thames operator City Cruises has acquired its first dedicated events boat, named the Erasmus. The vessel, with a capacity of 300 guests, is the company’s only private-hire corporate event venue in London. It is also available for leisure gatherings.
The 38m Erasmus has several versatile indoor and outdoor spaces including three alfresco decks, a formal 130-seat dining space with booth and table seating, plus a large inside mid-deck room.
City Cruises managing director Kyle Haughton said: “We are thrilled to welcome the Erasmus to our London fleet because we have seen a growing demand for private hire among the corporate and leisure market.
“The technology, flexible space, layout and contemporary interior design allows event organisers to host corporate product launches, award ceremonies and company gatherings as well as personal celebrations from weddings to parties.”
Haughton added the Erasmus galley and kitchen team could cater for a wide variety of dining styles, from casual fare and canapés to fine dining and upper-deck barbecues during the summer months.
Corporate and leisure guests can board Erasmus from a London pier of their choice at Westminster, the London Eye or Greenwich. All cruises include London’s main riverside sights.
