City Cruises York Private Charters

Perhaps a more cost-effective and exclusive option for larger groups is privately chartering your own boat for the evening, suitable for groups from as little as 20 people up to 100.

We can assist you in creating your own bespoke floating party with a choice of boat, food, boarding drinks, entertainment and decorations. Impress your hen guests with cocktails and canapés or delicious dinner and drinks. Dance the night away or simply sit back and relax in the comfortable saloon or spacious top deck.

Please note our additional Terms and Conditions for Hen Party Private Charters:

  • A maximum 3 hour boat hire
  • A buffet from one of our menus must be ordered
  • A returnable security bond must be paid to secure your booking
