Evian® is the official water of the US Open and it’s launching a cool experience for this year’s Men’s Final on Sunday, September 10th. Tennis fans will get the chance to board the SS evian to take in the match along with food and drinks as it cruises along the Hudson River on a branded Circle Line boat.
The SS evian cruise will be hosted by Maria Sharapova and she’ll offer commentary around the match as the boat sails. The boat even has its own tennis court and one lucky guest will get to volley with Sharapova and win two tickets to the 2024 US Open. Tickets are on sale for $99 and include complimentary cocktails, wine, and beer, as well as passed hors d’oeuvres and lobster rolls.
Maria Sharapova said:
I’m excited to captain the SS evian, featuring New York City’s first floating tennis court and a truly innovative fan experience. It’s an amazing way to connect with fans and showcase in real-time how vitally important it is to stay hydrated for peak performance as we watch the men’s side battle it out in the US Open Final. I can’t wait to have fun with the fans and give everyone aboard the SS evian an inside look at what it means to compete at the highest level.”
Tickets can be purchased here. They’re being released in limited quantities (starting with a batch at 9:00 AM EST today) and then August 29th and September 5th for the event on September 10th. Evian® is donating all proceeds from ticket sales to Billion Oyster Project, which is a New York City-based nonprofit dedicated to restoring oyster reefs to New York Harbor and preserving the city’s iconic waterways.
The cruise departs from Pier 81 (West 41st Street and 12th Avenue) and is open to guests ages 21 and over. It boards at 2:35 PM and returns at 5:45 PM (although it says it goes until the match is over).
Anthony’s Take: What a cool way to see the US Open. Yes, you’re not in Arthur Ashe Stadium, but being out on a boat to watch the match with a tennis legend is a pretty sweet way to take in some tennis.
