General Details

This is a 1929 New York Engine Launch motoryacht custom built for the Dupont family. It has 2 20kw Isuzu generators. The wood work and furniture are just amazing. This boat really takes you back in time. The interior above deck is in great condition. It has cabinets with hanging wine glasses, a granite bar with stools, couches, love seats, dining table, and amazing views from the ample number of large windows. There is also a massive amount of storage in the beautiful wooden cabinets. Here is the bad news. This boat sank in shallow water not long ago. The below deck portion of this boat is currently being repaired. The owner in the late 80's spent over 2 million to restore this vessel. It would seem that it needs partial restoration again. The owner hopes that someone will purchase this boat with the intention to restore it as an investment and use the vessel for vintage motoryacht charters. He is also willing to train the buyer on all ship systems and operation as he is a USCG certified captain and knows every screw on that boat.
