A bespoke creation
The Gatsby is a truly beautiful vessel adding to the attractions of Little Venice. This bespoke 1930s vessel is made of mahogany and teak. It’s 8 meters long and 1.1 meters wide offering a total capacity of 5 people, 4 passengers and the chauffeur.
Due to its limited capacity we pay special attention to details. Features such as traditional picnic hampers, vintage Art Deco porcelain dishes and cutlery, elegant crystal champagne glasses, linen napkins, woollen lap blankets for the chilly days will be part of our service standards and of course the quality of the food for our gourmet picnics and champagne not excluding the high quality of the instrumentalists that may accompany the cruises.
