Wynn To Use European-Style Boats To Ferry Guests Across Boston Harbor

Encore Boston Harbor Day
LAS VEGAS — July 15, 2014 — Wynn MA, LLC has announced a comprehensive water transportation plan that features low-profile European style boats ferrying guests to points across Boston Harbor. The ferries will travel in a loop from the Wynn Resort in Everett to Long Wharf to the World Trade Center/Seaport area and back. The enclosed boats would operate year round and would be custom designed to fit under local draw bridges without impacting traffic on land.

“This is a meaningful way to take thousands of cars off the road while offering Wynn guests a memorable experience that begins before they take one step onto our resort,” said Bob DeSalvio, senior vice president of development at Wynn. “In minutes, you can get from downtown Boston or the Seaport in a relaxed atmosphere without any traffic. We expect this to be a signature element of our Wynn guest experience.”

Guests can go to Logan Airport and other Boston Harbor locations, including the Cape and islands, by departing the Wynn Shuttle at Long Wharf and connecting with MBTA and private ferries. The Wynn Resort in Everett will also feature water taxi service that can bring individual guests to any location in Boston Harbor. A public boat dock will also accommodate private boats at the resort.

The Wynn water ferry would be marketed aggressively to promote use and minimize road traffic in the area.
