On Wednesday, September 17, 2014, Wendy Williams and her guests stepped aboard the 85-foot luxury yacht Eastern Star. As they drank champagne and dined during a three-hour cruise, all enjoyed the spectacular sites of NYC, while celebrating Wendy’s husband Kevin Hunter’s birthday in style. The next morning, she sang praises on her show about her experience and gave shout-outs of thanks to Captain Nick Kutscera and the entire crew aboard the Eastern Star.
Williams is the latest celebrity to experience the intimate elegance of the Eastern Star. Other high profile celebrity clients include: Leonardo Di Caprio, Mike Myers, Gisele Bundchen, David Letterman, Billy Crystal, Luenell, 50 Cent, Sean Lennon, Stephen Daldry – Academy Award nominated director of ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,’ Allan Houston – NY Knicks, and Steve Higgins – The Tonight Show.
“Our guests can truly kick back and relax aboard the Eastern Star,” says Laurie Smollett Kutscera, the yacht’s event coordinator and co-owner with her husband Captain Nicholas Kutscera. “They know that our professional staff will take excellent care of both them and their guests, affording privacy without the usual disruptions that come with celebrity status. As with all our clients, we treat each with the utmost respect while offering some of the finest cuisine and services available. There really is no better way to be a part of the most exciting city in the world (NYC) and have complete privacy than aboard this elegant ship!”
