Built in 1929, our 43-foot yacht has witnessed many transformations during its century of life in the Bay Area. Now available to the public for the first time, we invite you to make history of your own -- with an epic cruise, a dinner party for the ages, or simply a few hours of quality time with your loved ones. We offer cruises for up to six passengers with a licensed captain, from 2 hours to multiple days in length, as well as dockside rentals (for groups up to 12). We can arrange food and drink through our network of local chefs, or you're welcome to bring you own. Click on the links above for more information and to make a reservation. 


Brian Barth and Samira Kiani

I write for publications such as the New Yorker and National Geographic and am currently making a film and writing a book about homelessness in the Bay Area. I bought this boat with my wife, a doctor, genetic engineer and filmmaker, as a place to bring people together from the various parts of our lives. We're inviting tech CEOs aboard alongside homeless residents we've befriended. We're using the boat in a new film and hosting dinner parties with artists, activists and freethinkers. And: we're inviting you aboard.

Every booking supports the Union Island project, an initiative to provide marine excursions to low income residents and others who do not have access to the Bay.
