The John M.S. Lecky UBC Boathouse captures its outdoor setting throughout the interior event hall space by its floor to ceiling windows on three of the four walls. It is a fully floating facility set on the historic Fraser River with stunning views of the North Shore Mountains. The Event Hall is complete with a fire place, lounge furniture, adjoining balcony and breathtaking views of the city. All tables and chairs, a state of the art multimedia package, lockable change rooms that are great for bridal ready spaces, and an event coordinator are included in your rental. Use of our gorgeous lower dock space is complimentary if you would like to host your ceremony or cocktail hour outdoors.
