Information On Condition

Elco, which stands for Electric Launch Company, developed a series of electric and gas propulsion boats that became the premier recreational boats of their day, beginning in 1893. When World War One came along Elco produced hundreds of motor launches for the British Navy. However, it wasn't until after that war that the company really hit its stride building unique, high quality electric and gas launches. Thomas Edison, J. P. Morgan, John Jacob Astor, the Grand Duke Alexander of Russia and hundreds of other notables had to have one. In 1928, a year after he flew solo across the Atlantic, Charles Lindbergh spent a summer getting acquainted with a 38 foot Elco cabin cruiser that he chartered to get away from the roaring crowds. The "LoneEagle' decided that this would be the perfect ways to find solitude after his marriage to Anne Morrow. With the help of some very closedmouthed Elco executives, he purchased a 38 foot cruiser, changed the two rear single berths to one double berth and had the boat moored along a deserted stretch of Long Island beach in preparation for his wedding day. The boat was named "Mouette." After the wedding ceremony he, with the help of Elco executives who were in on the plot from the beginning, the couple made their way to the 'Mouette" and spent a few days of their honeymoon in complete privacy.
