All abord for an extraordinary culinary journey along the Hillsborough River, as Tampa’s first dining river cruiser, designed specifically for Tampa brings a totally new dining experience for residents and visitors alike.


Craft Tampa will be Tampa's first dining river cruiser, designed specifically for Tampa, will be the largest vessel cruising the Hillsborough River at 130’ in length and a dining capacity of 150 passengers.

The vessel resembles a European river cruise ship. Craft is designed with many firsts in the U.S passenger vessel industry including: an open kitchen concept with a gas grill and stove, a boat on a boat featuring a 1914 vintage wooden cruiser as the bar, 3 dining options including indoor, outdoor or bar seating and finally the first displacement dining cruise vessel propelled with diesel outboard propulsion.

Craft has less than 11’ of air draft (vertical clearance) to pass beneath the 5 super low bridges on the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa, offering a truly unique and one of kind experience. A culinary and cocktail river journey.

The seasonal menu was created by Executive Chef Allison Beasman. The open kitchen concept will allow guests to view the meal preparation from start to finish while enjoying a craft cocktail from the bar.


Craft is a brand new concept from Yacht Starship Cruises and Events who offer a variety of cruises in Downtown Tampa and Clearwater Beach, including Yacht Starship Dining Cruises, Pirate Water Taxi, the pirate ship, Lost Pearl, and more.
