Victorian Ferryboat Berkeley

Boats have character, just like people.  That being said, I thought a little bio would be appropriate to introduce our vessels.  This week, I’d like to introduce you to Berkeley.

Historic ferryboat Berkeley is available as a Venue for Corporate Events, Private Events, Weddings, and Receptions.

You can be a part of living history!  Built in 1898, the Berkeley ferryboat still enchants and delights with her carved wood paneling, old-fashioned passenger seating, elegant stairwells, and stained glass windows.

Dance floor

Back in the day, she was the largest commuter ferry in the US.  Berkeley was built to transport rail passengers from Oakland to San Francisco and even evacuated refugees and transported aid following the San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906.

Deck party

Today guests can rent out the upper deck for a variety of special occasions.  The Berkeley can accommodate up to 1,000 guests.  She has ample seating for 350, a dance floor, bar, tables, presentation screen, a sound system, and two outdoor party decks.  Catering, music, flowers, and even pirates to entertain guests can be arranged through the Event Venues department.

Musicians

If Berkeley were my friend, I would say she was classy, elegant, trustworthy, heroic, and at times surprising.  Intrigued?  Come on by for a tour of the Berkeley and see her beauty for yourself!

Fair winds,

Erica Geary
