About Us

The MV Skansonia is a premier private event facility, specializing in outdoor or indoor weddings and receptions. She sits on the North shore of Lake Union with an unsurpassed view of Seattle and the Space Needle. While her outside look remains the same, she now boasts many improvements such as forced air heat, large bay doors that open up to the patio, fireplaces upstairs and downstairs, oversized furniture from a 16th century castle, and vintage light fixtures from the Seattle Music Theatre.

Beginning in 2009 she had a complete interior redesign from head to toe. The new re-designed bathrooms, carpets, and freshly painted ceilings and walls keep her as a favorite venue for people seeking a truly historic piece of Pacific Northwest history. Perfect for any season, and accommodating to Weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, and Holiday Parties of all sizes, her maximum guest capacity is 300, reception style.

Average non-peak rates during the months of January-June range from 26.50-46.50 per person. Average peak rates during the months of July-September range from 34.50-48.50 per person. Average non-peak rates during the months of October-November range from 30.50-46.50 per person. We will gladly send you an estimate if you have a set or flexible date and a rough guest count in mind. Please contact us for our current rates.
