The Zumbrota was originally owned by circus baron Charles Ringling in 1918 and named either for his boyhood hometown in Zumbro Falls, MN or for his star attraction,  the largest circus elephant ever in captivity, isn’t clear.  The beautiful renovations, completed early 2018, represent a fresh feel on a classic design. Highlights include the polished hardwood columns and stairwells which make up the centerpiece of Zumbrota. 125 guests can comfortably enjoy the three decks of this vintage Hollywood party yacht boasting gleaming teak decks, sparkling antique brass fittings, comfy window seats and giant bay windows to take in gorgeous views of the marina. New plush, neutral toned carpets, parquet dance floor and window seat covers round out the fresh look while guests get a glimpse of what it might have been like toasting with past owners, May West and Douglas Fairbanks Sr. in the 1930’s.

The Zumbrota was the icing on the cake!!! The party was amazing, the guests were impressed with the boat, the crew and the beauty of it all and we had the best time. My kids had a wonderful wedding and priceless memories thanks in large part to you.
