An Outing on Rumrunner II for you and 25 guests, catered by McGrath Clambakes

Classic Cruises of Newport is pleased to offer an hour and a half cruise on board the 1929 motor-yacht RumRunner II, one of the few surviving Prohibition era “shore boats” from the days when moonless nights found these boats speeding hundreds of cases of booze from the ships off Rum Row to shore “drops” along the coast of Narraganset Bay. RumRunner II combines history and fun, and is soon to be seen in a documentary film about the “Black Duck Massacre”, which unfolded off Fort Adams on the night of December 29, 1929.

Your cruise on the Rumrunner II can accommodate up to 49 guests, though we suggest 25 – 35 for a special event. This cruise will include light bites and beverage service, which will feature period cocktails such as Gin Rickeys, Mary Pickfords, and French 75s, as well as Champagne. We will have recorded music from the ‘20s and ‘30s, though you do have the option of hiring a small ensemble for the cruise if you desire.
Your crew will be dressed in proper yachting attire for the period so feel free to encourage your guests to do so as well!

RumRunner II is a US Coast Guard certified vessel and has been a fixture in the local charter yacht fleet for the past 25 years.

This outing will be catered by McGrath Clambakes!
