The best way to see any river or body of water is on a private yacht. Take a vacation from the mainland and climb on board. Set sail on a dreamy river or massive ocean and spend a few hours away, or days, weeks, or months. You will enjoy the many benefits of your cruise on the water and have great memories to cherish for years to come.

If you build it …

Imagine visiting cities like Old Town Alexandria in historic Northern Virginia- a hip yet quaint area that beams with swank and vintage charm. The streets are lined with happening restaurants, antique stores, and a nice shopping district with many trendy stores. Start your day with breakfast in Old Town, then head for the Potomac River. An afternoon or evening cruise is the perfect way to spend time with friends and loved ones.

Cruising the river has many benefits for water and boat-lovers of all kinds. There is the fresh air and beautiful sunshine to put a smile on your face; a mist from the water to calm your mind, and the sway of the boat to put your body at ease. The whole experience will be unforgettable and unique.

Where to, Ma’am?
