Charter the Virginia V

Take a step back in time…

Built in 1922 in the Puget Sound and recently restored, the Steamship Virginia V is a genuine wooden-hull ship with a fully-operational 100+ year-old steam engine. The 125-foot ship has long been a tradition among groups in Washington state looking for a nostalgic maritime experience for their social function, office party, holiday party, birthday, wedding, anniversary, bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah celebrations.

The Virginia V is available for charter on Lake Washington and Puget Sound along with dockside events at our moorage at the Historic Ship’s Wharf at Seattle’s Lake Union Park.

To arrange for a private tour or to speak with our charter consultant, email or call the Virginia V Foundation at 206-624-9119.

Consider the Virginia V for:
  • Conventions, Tour Groups, Field Trips
  • Weddings and Receptions
  • Corporate Entertaining Meetings and Retreats
  • Birthdays, Retirement Celebrations, Special Occasions, Social Event
