1924 Wilson 98 Tour in Astoria, Oregon

Stock #218550

Take a look at one of the original Astoria Ferries that has been turned into a BIG party boat. This 1924 ferryboat was known as Tourist #2 before the bridge from Washington to Oregon was built.

This is a historical vessel that needs some TLC.

However, it has been replumbed, rewired, and depowered ( at some point) so you can have fun with your friends or even start your own party business.

The current owner is restoring the base ferry boards as we speak.

It has a galley area for bringing in catering, including a fridge/freezer, storage, and plenty of room to lay out what you want.

Two heads have been upgraded to ADA standards.

Two Bars have most acrutements needed. And there is a DJ Soundsystem throughout.

Information On Condition

It is in good condition, with some TLC needed. The stern deck is in the process of being replaced. The engine and 2 generators are working well. All the windows, bars, and galley area are in great condition. The second level is historically accurate. The top cockpit has a big wheel, and many of the controls are upgraded.

Stern deck, upper deck coatings

Oils, plugs, etc
