For your next special occasion, treat your guests like royalty with exceptional service and cuisine on a beautifully renovated vintage motor yacht. Stepping aboard one of our yachts is like stepping back to an earlier era of service and style. Gleaming brass and chrome, polished mahogany and teak, and elegant 20th century nautical decor are all on display.  At Vintage Yacht Charters, we combine our beautiful classic motor yachts with gourmet food and beverage options, exceptional service, and other special touches to create a unique luxury experience.

Vintage Yacht Charters will help you plan an unforgettable Potomac River day cruise or dockside experience for your special occasion. Just as JFK and Jackie cruised the Potomac river with Washington’s elite, you and your guests can see the beauty and wonder of a seeing Washington DC from the rivers.  Enjoy a cocktail, glass of wine, and delicious hors d’oeuvres on the foredeck or aft salon while you take in amazing views, monuments, and historical sites.

Vintage Yacht Charters is a new locally-owned small business. Partner Tommie Williams (Captain Tommie), a native Washingtonian and retired corporate operations executive, has 20 years of boating experience and started her chartering business in 2018. She teamed up with Nick Dowling, a hospitality entrepreneur and government services CEO, to launch Vintage Yacht Charters.
