Giants Enterprises, the entrepreneurial arm of the San Francisco Giants Major League Baseball team, recently launched the newly reimagined California Spirit, a 100-foot luxury vessel ready to navigate San Francisco Bay and host one-of-a-kind events on the water. Docked within steps of AT&T Park, home of the three-time World Champion Giants, the sleek 130-passenger yacht features a sophisticated, modern aesthetic, including three spacious viewing decks, two redesigned bars, elegant furniture and state-of-the-art A/V enhancements.
In addition, Giants Enterprises also added Yacht Lady, an 80-foot Monte Fino Motor Yacht, to its fleet. Capableof hosting up to 12 guests, Yacht Lady is an intimate, high-end vessel featuring camphor wood cabinetry, rich textiles, leather upholstered walls and suede ceilings.
Both vessels are designed for ocean and bay cruising to provide maximum comfort for guests and offer refined event opportunities for private group charters, San Francisco Giants' game day experiences, social gatherings and more. From weddings to team buildings, dancing to dining, both luxury vessels provide custom elegance at every turn and a crew of professionals aboard to make cruises as comfortable and memorable as possible.
Since 2000, when Giants Enterprises was first formed, the hospitality, event, entertainment and sports consultancy company has hosted thousands of events for thousands of clients across the country. The majority of these events have taken place on land both inside and around AT&T Park. With the recent addition of the California Spirit and Yacht Lady, Giants Enterprises now has the distinct advantage of operating events both on-land and on-water as well as the capability to provide integrated events by pairing one of AT&T Park’s many waterfront venues with a one-of-a-kind experience on the Bay.
The California Spirit calls Pier 40 its home port, which is located along the Embarcadero, a few hundred feet northeast of AT&T Park. Called “baseball’s perfect address”, AT&T Park’s unique geographic location along the San Francisco waterfront has provided stunning views and an unparalleled gameday experience for more than 50 million baseball fans over the course of the last 17 years.
With the ability to entertain on the water, Giants Enterprises looks to further capitalize on the beautiful sights, scenery and sounds of the Bay Area and provide new event experiences for both old and new clients alike.
“The California Spirit sets the standard for luxury entertainment on the Bay and we are excited to offer our clients a truly one-of-a-kind experience on the water,” said Stephen Revetria, Senior Vice President of Giants Enterprises. “San Francisco’s vibrant event scene provides the perfect setting to launch our new endeavor. We have a proven track record of producing thousands of memorable events at our many amazing venues in and around AT&T Park and are thrilled to now apply our expertise to on-water events. The ability to host an intimate dinner in the Giants’ dugout followed by a sunset Bay cruise is truly unique and we are perfectly positioned to offer unforgettable event experiences for years to come.”
Cruises can be customized based on guests’ preferences and are based on a standard four-hour rental time frame. Charter routes feature some of the Bay Area’s most iconic landmarks including up-close views and picture perfect photography opportunities of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, Alcatraz, San Francisco Ferry Building, McCovey Cove andmore. Equipped with full kitchens, both vessels shine with gourmet food and beverage packages as well as a diverse array of entertainment options – from live music, to sommelier experiences and interactive games.
