Most recently used for research and other charter work, 'ACANIA' has a history as fascinating and inspiring as her looks! Lore has it that she was built as a luxury yacht with no expense spared a for Wall Street banker, and was later gifted to silent screen actress, Constance Bennett, who entertained on board until the vessel was appropriated for WWII. Construction is of riveted steel; original Winton diesels were replaced with twin 280-hp GM mains, later rebuilt in 1990; 12,500 gallons fuel (8,000 capacity currently useable) and 2,700 gallons water; (2) triple cabins, (5) double cabins, separate captain's quarters aft of the wheelhouse, (3) heads and (3) showers. A bit of maritime history never to be replaced, she's showing her years and needs upgrades to her accommodations and systems. Ross MacTaggart's book, 'THE GOLDEN CENTURY, Classic Motor Yachts 1830 to 1930' says "This grand yacht, photographically documented to a degree that few vessels are, is an excellent candidate for restoration."

SERIOUS SELLER offers very attractive pricing in hopes of finding a nostalgic and caring buyer capable of restoring this unique steel fantail to her former glory. NOTE THAT MOST PHOTOS SHOWN HERE ARE FROM OUR 1995 FILES, with more recent shots denoted plus a few historic ones. Vessel is currently receiving a complete cleaning in preparation for interior and exterior refit. TRADES CONSIDERED! UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY - CALL FOR DETAILS...
