The old Admiral Riverboat is being auctioned off and it’s a damn shame they didn’t put this bucket up on Ebay a few weeks earlier than they did or we could have tacked in on to our list of worthless ebayed St. Louis items.
Ok, so technically it isn’t “worthless” since the “Buy It Now” price is a cool 1.5 Million
The SS Admiral was originally built in 1907 as a RR Ferry across the Mississippi.
2. Like all South City homes and celebs with daddy issues, it has had some additions, most of it probably being plastic.
The the 1930’s it was lengthened 70 ft.
3. Air Conditioned!
…at that time (1930s) the only air conditioned excursion boat in existence.
4. Not going anywhere…
It has been a permanently moored entertainment venue on the St. Louis, MO. River Front. The diesel engines and drive were removed approx. 20 years ago.
5. Needs a facelift
For long term use, on water, will require a new skin on the Hull.
Wow, sweet. 1.5 Million dollars sounds like quite a deal if you want to go get yourself the boat version of Diana Ross.
…the air conditioning would just be a bonus.
