Whether you need to wow clients, treat colleagues to a well-deserved celebratory meal or simply show out-of-towners what your city has to offer, the Moshulu sails away with the prize.

The Moshulu is permanently moored—so there’s no actual sailing taking place—but it’s easy to settle into your table and feel like you’re about to set sail. It is the world’s oldest and largest square rigging ship still afloat.
