Claughton. Savannah’s antebellum charm, with flowing Spanish moss hanging from stoic live oaks and welcoming shady squares, harkens back to the days when paddle driven riverboats full of tourists and locals dotted the Savannah River. With the founding of the company, Capt. Claughton sought to bring a dinner cruise tour to Savannah. After doing his research, he invested in the River Queen, a 400 passenger vessel. This riverboat served him, and his guests, well as he and his crew welcomed those in Savannah to learn the history of this great port city. In 1997, after six years of success, Capt. Claughton expanded the company and added an additional riverboat, the 550 passenger Georgia Queen. Both riverboats feature two climate-controlled dining decks and an open-air third deck. Decked out in traditional red, white and blue riverboat colors, these elegantly appointed boats cannot help but draw visitors back to a time when gentility and relaxation was always in vogue. In winter 2007, the company welcomed the newest edition to their fleet, the 600 passenger New Savannah River Queen. This boat features three climate controlled dining rooms, three bars, and a top deck snack shop. The Savannah River Queen has two large dining areas perfect for large groups and an open air, covered third deck patio space. The third deck also features a VIP room capable of accommodating 36 people.
