The Paddle Steamer Decoy is a "Perth Icon" and has been operating for 25 years on the magnificent Swan River and has her own exclusive mooring in prestigious South Perth. Specialising in weddings and corporate functions the vessel is being sold fully operational as a going concern and has liquor and gaming licences. She is a registered Australian ship No: 852383, which makes this vessel fully morgageable. The Paddle Steamer Decoy is a genuine steam powered vessel that was built by Australian Ship Building Industries and is built to DNV survey 1A R5 Class D1, although currently operates on a 1E and licensed to carry 230 passengers. The vessel is powered by a 1905 Ransome Sims and Jefferies twin cylinder steam engine totally rebuilt in 1986 with a new oil fired burner and maxitherm boiler. She is the only sea going designed Paddle Steamer in Australia. The upper deck is constructed of solid Jarrah and Iron bark flooring. The vessel is also fitted out extensively with solid brass nautical memorabilia and has a unique 58 brass pipe calliope organ which can operate manually or automatically. The vessel is being offered for sale due to retirement after 20 years and at a fraction of the replacement cost. This truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity for an astute investor.
