Am decorating for a venetian masked ball. Would like to rent a gondola boat for pictures etc. Does not have to be authentic and could be a prop gondola as long as it looks good.

Angel did you have any success in locating a gondola for your party? I am planning a graduation dance with our theme being a venetian masquarade. We would like to have one wall decorated with a bridge and gondola. I`m looking for props.

Ugh. Unfortunately no. To rent the gondola I did find would have blown my budget. I am here in the San Francisco, Marin area and could not find a thing.

There use to be (maybe still) gondoliers in Petaluma at the river. Based near the picturesque and boat harbor near dining, etc.. They serve the public including bridal parties and rent Gondola as props for events. Sorry I don`t know the name. Too far away for me being in Palo Alto. I`m going to make a stand-up prop for my event. Good luck....

Did you ever find a gondola for your party?
I would like Venetian mooring poles and a gondola prop that we can float in a pool for a Venetian Carnevale party.

No - I never did find an affordable gondola prop.

After making a few temporary props of my own I discovered a great resource! I have an acquintance who is a prop man for local theater and opera. He has in storage a gondola that rolls on wheels, and other items of Venetian origin. Logistics of transport and care of items is likely a big issue however. Rental costs unknown.

I have a Venetian style gondola that my father hand made to replicate the real ones. It`s hull is symmetrical though for more practicallity. I live in Sacramento and would be willing to transport locally for a small fee plus the rental fee.

I am in Utah and would like to rent a Gondola for my daughter`s wedding because the location has a big lake.
Could you let me know what it would cost to do this and the transport fee.

I am in Los Angeles and need to rent a gondola boat for Monday October 26, 2009. It wont be in water, I just need it as a prop.

I am in Long Beach. I could get it there. What is the type of party. What type of place it would be located. What exactly do you need it to do. Mike
If you send me an email I will send you a picture of it. Mike

I have real gondolas and prop gondolas for rent. I actually have an inventory of almost any thing marine oriented to rent. From small row boats, sail boats, surf boards, paddle boards, canoes, kayaks, waterbikes, big sailboats to fishing boats to full blown sailing schooners. If it floats or has floated, I have it or can get it. If you need to sail it around the world or blow it up for a movie.

I`m interested in the gondolas you have for rent for a party on Dec. 4, 2009. What is your contact information? THANK YOU!

I`m trying to contact Michael Ottolini about a gondola rental for a high end photo shoot - if any one has his info I`d greatly appreciate it...

I am in need of a Gondola in San Francisco, if the Sacramento boat is still available please let me know.

Hi ! I am doing a photo shoot on Oct. 14, 2013 and need to use a gondola that floats. It will not be used to actually transport or hold people. Just sit in the water-- and not sink! I don`t know where to rent or get one. Does anyone have any ideas. Thanks.- Todd

Hello! I am in need of a Gondola Boat for a school themed party. Would be used for pictures only, so does not have to float. Please send me contact info asap, as the party is in May, 2014.
