Have your meetings where the grand tradition of Mississippi riverboats comes to life on Mission Bay aboard Bahia Belle Cruises. Our ships, the Bahia Belle and the William D. Evans, were built to mimic an 1860s-era riverboat, down to the very last detail.
William D. Evans
The 19th century, 100-foot-long William D. Evans was launched in 1986 as a loving tribute to that era's most elegant mode of transportation. Skimming the blue-green waters of Mission Bay, the William D. Evans presents a magical setting in which to stage a truly memorable event. Equipped to handle 600 guests, she provides all the modern amenities while still maintaining an air of 19th century elegance.
On the first level, the "Boiler Room Bar" is twenty feet of copper and brass resembling massive antique boilers. Seating up to 160 diners on each interior deck, the William D. Evans sets an elegant table with fine linens, crystal stemware, china settings and silver flatware to impress any gathering. Below deck, a fully equipped galley can handle any size event, meaning an end to onshore catering needs. An elevator between two decks allows for quick and easy serving. The William D. Evans. Continuing the American paddlewheel tradition...Providing an unforgettable setting for your next event.
