Historic Steam-Powered SS Delphine Super-Yacht Hits Market for $22M

Published: August 5, 2016 | By: American Luxury Staff

A very special historic, steam-powered superyacht that was originally owned by original Dodge brother, Horace Dodge, of Dodge automobiles has come up for sale for $22 million.

The 1921-built SS Delphine underwent a six-year long restoration that was finished in 2003 to bring the 257-footer back to her original glory. Great Lakes Engineering Works teamed up with architect Henry J. Gielow to build the ship for Dodge.

Thirteen opulent staterooms house up to 26 guests, and though they are fashioned to recall the luxury and pizzazz of the roaring 20’s, the vessel’s rooms have been retrofitted with modern amenities and services.

A pair of 1,500 horsepower Babcoq & Wilcox quadruple steam expansion engines power the mammoth yacht, giving the SS Delphine a cruising speed of nine knots and a top speed of 13.5 knots.

The SS Delphine has been used for events like celebrity birthday parties and Formula 1 pre-race celebrations, only adding to the star power of owning this piece of history.
