Venue Description

The California Spirit yacht presents the most elegant and imposing yacht profile on the bay. Moreover, it is the largest and most recent addition to the Flagship Cruises and Events fleet of yachts. At 158 ft in length, she is perfect for any occasion events. The expansive vessel accommodates up to 600 guests and seats up to 300 diners.

This yacht is not only the newest, but also the most updated of all of the Flagship Cruises’ vessels; with elegant mahogany and cherry wood interiors and state-of-the-art multimedia system. Each deck can host a different dance floor with DJ/s or a live band; while providing quiet, impeccably furnished nooks for more personal conversations.

The California Spirit boasts two enclosed decks, two full service bars and an enormous upper platform which can be tented or enclosed as you wish. From each of these levels, the yacht offers 360° views of the San Diego skyline, Coronado Bridge … and as far south as Mexico. The two lower levels provide both climate-controlled and open-air decks; eliminating the need to climb any steps to come in/out of the fresh air.
