Turning Point

Historical Summary:

Turning Point is a Lake Union Dream Boat built in 1928 at the Lake Union Dry Dock (LUDD) Company in Seattle, WA. “Dream Boat” was a trademarked name. The original configuration accommodated eight passenger berths. Staterooms include one forward with built-in berths and drawers underneath, and a full length clothes locker. The salon has double berths on each side and bookshelves overhead. In the original layout, there was a single berth above these double berths. Renovations to date include removal of an un-original flybridge, hull repair, new wiring and electrical systems, installation of an 86HP Izuzu diesel engine, water system with new tanks, and galley cabinetry. Pleasant cruising is at 7-8.5 knots, with a max speed of 10 knots.
