NEW YORK, August 22, 2023 — With summer in full swing and temperatures at their peak, evian® natural spring water, the official water of the US Open, is hydrating tennis fans - waterside - aboard the first-ever SS evian viewing experience. During the historic New York sporting event, the SS evian will cruise along the Hudson River on the legendary Circle Line, celebrating the longstanding partnership between the US Open and evian, while uniting the love for tennis, the essential role hydration plays in propelling the sport to even greater heights, and the beauty of the city that hosts the tournament.

Guests on board the SS evian will have the exclusive opportunity to watch the Men’s Final and sit "courtside" on New York City's first floating tennis court while hydrating with evian, the water made with natural minerals from Alpine glacier rocks, that helps fuel players and fans on and off the court. Former US Open champion and evian hydration ambassador, Maria Sharapova, will serve as the ship's "captain,” offering attendees exclusive insights into the match and the role hydration plays in winning on one of the world's most renowned tennis courts.

“I’m excited to captain the SS evian, featuring New York City’s first floating tennis court and a truly innovative fan experience. It’s an amazing way to connect with fans and showcase in real-time how vitally important it is to stay hydrated for peak performance as we watch the men’s side battle it out in the US Open Final,” said Maria Sharapova. “I can’t wait to have fun with the fans and give everyone aboard the SS evian an inside look at what it means to compete at the highest level.”

Tickets will be available for purchase at https://www.circleline.com/sightseeing-cruises/events/ss-evian released in limited quantities at 9:00 AM ET on August 22nd, August 29th, and September 5th, leading up to the event on September 10th. Embracing the commitment by evian to sustainability, all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Billion Oyster Project, a New York City-based nonprofit dedicated to restoring oyster reefs to New York Harbor and preserving the city's iconic waterways.
