Yachting to Louisville basketball games for some

[stextbox id=”custom”]
Some fans will travel to University of Louisville basketball games in style.

Captain’s Quarters is moving forward with plans for Ohio River cruises to most games at the new KFC Yum! Center, starting with the opening game Nov. 16th against Butler. Room for 100 passengers but close to a sellout already for the first game, according to Louisville Hot Bytes.

Boarding the yacht will cost between $25 and $30 per person, per CQ’s Alan Hincks:

“This will include heavy hor d’oeuvres with a cash bar and dessert/coffee selection on the way back, on some cruises there might be a full dinner buffet, I am looking at times and day of the week to make that decision. We will disembark a hour and a half before tip off (takes 45 minutes to get downtown depending on current ) and we will leave a half a hour after game is over.”

He’s also considering cruises for other events at the center, including the Lady Ga Ga and My Morning Jacket concerts.
