Queen of the West

Sailing Dates:

Queen of the West
The U.S.-flagged, 230-foot Queen of the West was the first overnight passenger sternwheeler to be built and operated in the West in 80 years. Launched in 1995, the Queen of the West is propelled solely by her three-story-high churning paddlewheel, just like sternwheelers of the past. But unlike those earlier craft, the Queen doesn?t rely on a steam engine. Instead, she is powered by a revolutionary hydraulic propulsion system that uses environmentally safe biodegradable hydraulic oil. Her 45-foot-long bow ramp allows passengers to go ashore anywhere along the river, much as the 19th-century vessels did.
