"This Virginia V is such a unique asset to the region. She is one of the last wooden steam powered vessels in the country and the last functioning steam powered member of the “Mosquito Fleet,” the precursor to the current state run ferry system. At 91 years old, the Virginia V tangibly represents a bygone era when the waters of Puget Sound were the primary means of transportation in our region. As the years pass she only gets more unique and more precious; appreciating in cultural value and import." 4culture.org
"City Catering consistently does an amazing job catering one of our client's annual holiday parties on the Virginia V. Packed to capacity, the City Catering staff is always able to navigate the crowd, passing hors d'oeuvres before the delicious buffet dinner and dessert bar. Being on a boat, timing is always a little tricky too, but they make it look seamless." Shelly Tolo, Tolo Events
