Launched in 1930, the classic yacht Taconite is one of the oldest, largest and best preserved teak-hulled motor yachts, built on the West Coast in the early decades of the last century. Commissioned by William E. Boeing, the founder of Boeing Aircraft, as a private pleasure yacht which served his family for the next 47 years.
The interior is reminiscent of a thirties luxury hotel, comprising four staterooms all with en-suites. The main saloon is built for relaxation and furnished with much of the original furniture and connects to the aft deck with a wet bar and a great vantage point for enjoying the passing scenery. The formal dining room can comfortably accommodate 10 guests. The large, beautiful teak decks are perfect for sun tanning, outdoor activities or a great casual dining experience. Taconite is a legend known up and down the coast, a home to modern nobility and film stars.
