Private Event Charters

CruiseRI is a showcase for all of Conanicut Marine Service Inc.'s charter boats, which includes Coastal Queen and the Jamestown Newport Ferry fleet and launch boats. Check out our full fleet of boats available for charter here. Let us know what you have in mind and we can make it happen! All of our boats are thoroughly cleaned and readied for each event.

Large parties can charter the spectacular Coastal Queen, the largest boat in the CruiseRI fleet, to create an event guests will love and remember. Our professional staff can work with your caterer, music supplier, etc., to bring the event you envision together. Coastal Queen is ready to be your hostess!

Coastal Queen is perfect for:
• Bachelor or bachelorette parties
• Company outings or business meetings
• A team-building event venue
• Reunions
• Special anniversaries
• Birthday celebrations
• Your special occasion!

Coastal Queen offers great sightseeing views and ultra-comfortable seating for all of your guests. The glass-enclosed lower deck features a grand teak wood central bar, snack bar and restrooms. The upper deck features open-air seating for catching fresh ocean breezes and has a protective hard top with clear, roll-down side curtains if the weather gets chilly. On those cool days, the boat is heated for comfort. The vessel seats up to 140 passengers and the main deck is fully ADA accessible.
