The Crossroads of the Aether
Just in case you could not think of anything to buy after winning the lottery. She has a beautiful interior with even more potential.
Something different! 130' x 36' steel riverboat with authentic paddlewheels makes this investment a unique recreational business opportunity. Fitted out with fully functional kitchen, restrooms, dance floor and upper level with bar, this boat can transform your life into a living adventure.

LEGENDARY DELTA QUEEN PURCHASE FINALIZED
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Feb. 16, 2015) – DQSC, LLC (dba The Delta Queen Steamboat Company) a Delaware limited liability company, Tuesday completed the purchase of the Legendary Steamboat Delta Queen from TAC Cruise, LLC (aka Xanterra Cruise, LLC) a Delaware limited liability company.
The legendary Delta Queen began service as an overnight passenger vessel in 1927, carrying passengers, cargo and automobiles between Sacramento, Calif. and San Francisco, Calif. After a brief period of service in the U.S. Navy during World War II, the vessel was sold as war surplus to Captain Tom Greene, owner of the Greene Line Steamers of Cincinnati, Ohio. From 1946 to 2008, the Delta Queen operated as an overnight cruise vessel along many of the prominent river and waterways running through America’s heartland, including the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Cumberland and Arkansas Rivers. Later on, the vessel operated as a dockside hotel in Chattanooga, Tenn. from 2009 until 2014.
“My partners and I are thrilled to be taking this critical first step toward the preservation and restoration of this important piece of American and river history,” said Cornel Martin, President and CEO of Delta Queen Steamboat Company. “We look forward to the day when the Delta Queen will once again be able to ply America’s waterways and allow passengers to relive the experiences of Mark Twain and his unique cast of river characters from the decks of a true 1927 steamboat.”
The Delta Queen is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is classified as a National Historic Landmark. The steamboat has also recently been designated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as a National Treasure.
“Our goal is to have the Delta Queen return to cruising America’s waterways in 2016 following extensive mechanical and hotel renovations,” said Martin.

We will miss her, but at least she is going to a good home.
Quite a treasure to lose. I have heard, right or wrong, that she is moving to Cincinnati(?)
Not sure on final destination; she is going for a refit first. I refuse to lament, though: if we can't take care of her here - and the neglect has been awful - I am glad that she will go someplace where she will be returned to former glory. Perhaps they will bring her for a visit some day.
