Tennessee Riverboat Company was founded in 1994 to serve the Knoxville market as a tourist destination attraction. The Star of Knoxville is a 245 passenger authentic paddlewheeler. As you cruise the beautiful Tennessee River you will notice the paddlewheels are turning and is the only means of propulsion for the boat. As the captain turns or docks the boat you will notice he can move one paddlewheel forward and the other in reverse.
The Star has two decks, one completely enclosed (heated and air condintiioned) and one open air deck to enjoy the sights.
