BLUE MIST is a true piece of American History. She has been gracing the waterfront with her presence for over 95 years and is more of a head turner now than when she was first launched.
BLUE MIST was constructed in 1917 on the banks of the Harlem River in Morris Heights, NY by the Charles L. Seabury Co., a prominent yacht builder, and the Gas Engine & Power Co. She was better known in those years as a “Speedway”! After a merger of these builders a few years later.
Since those early days has been completely, and professionally, restored with all of the creature comforts found aboard modern cruising vessels. All of her systems and structure have been modernized, and during her 95 years of service from that of a private family yacht, U.S. Coast Guard patrol boat.
The exterior design elements, pilothouse and salon are basically all original. The forward cabin has been redesigned to make the accommodations comfortable for a live aboard couple. The boat is complete with modern amenities like refrigeration, reverse cycle air conditioning, generator, hot water and shower.
With it’s fully restored engine and powertrain it is now available for private charter, cocktail cruises at the Casa Morada in Islamorada where it has become the center of attention on the dock. With her varnished mahogany decks and gleaming bronze hardware and fittings, Blue Mist shines like a piece of antique jewelry.
If you plan to visit the Florida keys, don’t miss the opportunity to take a sunset tour aboard the Blue Mist you’ll step back into history and join the ranks of Bogart and Bacall.
