Price reduced for quick sale
Due to health issues I have decided to sell the boat and it's now your rare opportunity to own a piece of history and easily make six figures annually running tours part time with nearly no overhead expenses. Or use it as a OUPV 6-pack tour boat or your very own recreational boat.
This commercial passenger glass bottom boat built in 1934 is the last remaining operational boat from the original world-famous Silver Springs glass bottom boat attraction, where more than a dozen original Tarzan movies were filmed.
At almost 88 years old, she has proven her longevity. Many full fiberglass vessels have failed or need major restoration at a fraction of her age. The reality is that a properly maintained wooden boat can last well over 100 years, and still look beautiful for your great grandchildren. You can’t say the same for full fiberglass boats – they just haven’t been around long enough to prove it. The ‘Princess Donna’ was originally build with fiberglass over wood, so the best of both worlds.
The boat has a current U.S. Coast Guard COI to operate with 12 passengers plus 2 crew members which makes her a serious money maker. The ‘Princess Donna’ is currently the oldest U.S. flagged commercial tour boat in the state of Florida.
The recent marine condition and value survey completed on 8/6/2021 values the boat and trailer at $125,000. More money than that was spent rebuilding her.
U.S. Coast Guard recent inspection on 8/12/2021.
All required equipment (not in survey pictures) is included, all being stored separately from the boat (Too much to list). Custom tri-axle aluminum trailer made by National Trailers included.
She’s powered by a 48volt electric Ray Electric outboard motor making her eco-friendly and green before any others. These boats have been electrically propelled since 1932. The hull is fiberglass over wood, LOA is 30', 9' beam, 8" wet draft, 7' air draft, 8,600lb weight, top speed 5.5 mph and she will run all day on a full charge.
I'm asking $49,900 which is a steal of a deal. If you don't have the available cash, please don't pursue this. Otherwise, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
