Volunteer Princess Cruises LLC has a 96-foot yacht, Volunteer Princess, that can be rented by businesses, organizations, families, fans and just about anybody interested in cruising Knoxville’s waterways. Walter LeMasurier, president of the company, estimated the craft’s cost at more than $2 million. The Volunteer Princess was constructed in Wisconsin by SkipperLiner and can accommodate 149 passengers.
I haven’t had the privilege of taking a cruise on the yacht but maybe someone will invite me in the near future. I did however take the picture above while I was on the Tennessee River Boat today for mother’s day. The river boat made for a nice afternoon and tomorrow I plan on writing a review of my experience on that ship.
The Volunteer Princess is setup very similar to the Tennessee River Boat for public voyages. The public voyages include special events like the mother’s day lunch outing as well as a Sunday Champagne Brunch Cruise (Adults: $35.00 Children under 10: $17.50) and a Thursday Night Dinner Cruise (Adults: $50.00 Children under 10: $25.00). But, the Volunteer Princess is by far the most unique and luxurious boat in Knoxville which makes it ideal for private parties. This boat is definitely the eye candy of Volunteer Landing marina. I wonder if they auction the boat to the highest bidder for Boomsday.
