Newest Watermark Excursion Yacht, RAVEN, to Perch in Baltimore
Iconic 1900-steamship inspired design, modern conveniences define Baltimore’s newest excursion boat
“Several years ago, Baltimore requested an iconic vessel, with a connection to Baltimore’s truly significant maritime heritage and now Watermark is delivering,”
Inspired by the steamship lines from the 1900’s, and with her signature purple hull, RAVEN was designed for both luxurious private charters and stylish public cruises. She was built by Scarano Boat Builders in Albany, New York, who was chosen because of their expertise in creating modern classic yachts. She took 15 months to build. RAVEN’s climate controlled main deck is spacious with wood-trimmed windows and beam ceilings along with a bar and media wall. Her details include:
• capacity for 149 seated guests
• 99’ long, 28’ beam
• deep purple hull
• a ‘wave’ wall with Hi-Def widescreen TV
• pebble textures with cherry-toned woodwork
• luxuriously tiled bathrooms with superior appointments
• a sunroof on the second deck and
• spectacular view of the Baltimore Harbor and the Chesapeake Bay.
RAVEN is available all year-long (climate controlled) for private charters and is the second Watermark excursion boat in Baltimore and the 13th in the Watermark fleet.
