Luxury Yacht Experience

If you are looking for a safe, enjoyable, private, upscale yachting experience for up to six people, you don’t have to travel to far away lands. Conveniently located on Table Rock Lake in Branson Missouri, you can live life like a king and spend the day on an upscale private yacht. Our charter provides exceptional service aboard the newest and nicest yacht available for charter on Table Rock Lake.  We work with our clients to ensure they get the most out of their time on the water. Whether you want to cruise around and be seen, cove out and enjoy the water toys such as a kayak, stand-up paddle board, and water lily, or boat to your choice of restaurants on the lake, or all of the above, we can meet your needs. While we are based out of State Park Marina, we will pick you up at the dock of your choice including Long Creek, Big Cedar, Emerald Point, State Park, Chateau, Indian Point, The Harbor, and Rock Lane. Let us know if you are staying at a location with access to a private dock so we can determine accessibility.

The Philosopher King is a well appointed vessel but there are a few things you should bring. We supply beach towels, life jackets, pool saddles, kayak, stand-up paddle board, water lily, cozies, corkscrews, bottle openers, ice, plates, and utensils. Guests are responsible for their own food and beverages, sunscreen, and we suggest a hat if you are going to be hanging out in the water. Non -marking shoes or bare feet only allowed on-board.

The Philosopher King

The name Philosopher King comes from Plato’s Republic. Plato believed only philosophers should be kings because unlike most people, philosophers put others first. That is our business philosophy as well. While onboard the Philosopher King you come first. The Philosopher King has all the luxury comforts to make your time on the lake enjoyable. The spacious cabin has a large lounging area, full galley, and a head with a separate shower. Not only is the cabin air conditioned, so is the cockpit entertainment area. Bring your own blue tooth device with your favorite music or let us know what type of music you enjoy and we will show off the top of the line sound system. For your beverage choice, there is a Yeti 110 cooler and an onboard ice maker to keep your drinks cool and refreshing. Whether you want to cruise the lake, anchor in the cove, or both, you will be treated like royalty.


Table Rock lake boasts 14 public marinas and 24 public boat launches, making a day on the water easy and accessible. Table Rock is located in Southwestern Missouri on the outskirts of Branson, Missouri. The crystal clear waters of Table Rock Lake extend 79 miles upstream along the White River and inundate areas in Missouri and Arkansas. You’ll find more than 800 miles of shoreline along Table Rock Lake and over 43,000 acres of surface area. This vast size of Table Rock Lake makes it a great place for watersports, fishing or relaxing. Table Rock Lake has many “fingers” or “arms” creating coves. Coves are often where you’ll find fishermen dropping a line or boats pulling tubes and skiers. “Coving out,” where several boats will drop anchor and spend the day, is popular during the summer months. The lake also boast some excellent restaurants which are accessible from the water. Boating to the Chateau, the Tiki bar, or Big Cedar lodge is the life fit for a King.
