William D. Evans

Get ready for a San Diego wedding to remember! Our custom-built boats are a tribute to early America’s most elegant mode of transportation. The majestic William D. Evans can host wedding parties from 100 to 200 for a one-of-a-kind wedding day that will leave your guests in awe.

The William D. Evans sternwheeler stretches more than 100 feet in length, from the tip of her three handcrafted wooden masts to the edge of her twelve-ton paddlewheel. Indulge with a ceremony at sunset on the quiet, sparkling waters of Mission Bay, then let your guests soak in the vintage ambiance of the ornamental pressed tin ceilings, winding wooden staircases, stained glass skylights and period brass and ironworks.

This San Diego wedding venue is self contained – your guests can enjoy the Boiler Room Bar on the first level before heading to the dining salon upstairs. The promenade on the third level is perfect for dancing under the stars or simply taking in the breathtaking views of Mission Bay. The luxurious two-hour cruise will be an event you’ll never forget.
