1893 Union Ironworks 109 Yacht in Astoria, Oregon

Stock #225191

Play where Presidents have played on this 1893 Historical vessel known as 'El Premero.' She was made in San Francisco in 1893 with all of the top materials available.

Since then this owner has spent @ $90k on the bottom putting on the finest coating available.

Enjoy the lavish cabin that opens on to a covered deck where you can entertain many friends. Take a walk up to the bow to have dinner in the elegant setting of the dining room with the original 'Presidential Pecan' table and chairs from England.

You can sit on the front deck after dinner and enjoy the sunsets.

The top deck was added in the '50s so you have lots of sunbathing areas.

El Primero transported four different presidents, including William Howard Taft when he came to Seattle to visit the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in 1909.
