We are a small business owned and operated by a Chicago native with deep family roots in the maritime industry.
"The Summer of George" was designed and built to be a party boat. Groups up to 150 can enjoy the 100 foot, 2 story vessel. The open air, rooftop deck is decorated with cocktail tables, and bench seating. It's perfect for sitting back and taking in the views, or for dancing the night away. The enclosed bottom deck is climate controlled making it possible to cruise in comfort in all weather conditions. There are large, mahogany rimmed windows on both sides offering 360 degree views for sightseeing. Restrooms and the main bar are also located on this level. Changeable floor plans are available.
The boat is located at River City Marina, 900 South Wells Street, right under Bertrand Goldberg's famed "River City" building. It is just 6 blocks South of the "Willis Tower," also known as the "Sears Tower," on the South Branch of the Chicago River.
