The steamship superyacht Delphine has had a price reduction of €16,000,000. The 78-metre Great Lakes Engineering Works yacht, launched in 1921, is now listed for sale at €19,750,000 with Northrop & Johnson.
SS Delphine is the largest steam yacht built in the US still in existence today. Her original owner, Horace Dodge of the Dodge automobile empire, designed her unique quadruple-expansion steam engines, which still work today.
Like the majority of large privately owned yachts in the 1940s, she was requisioned during the war by the navy. Unlike many of her peers, however, she survived, and has ultimately returned to private ownership. Have a look at a timeline of her major milestones, below.
