Seller note:

This passenger vessel is full of Old-Florida history. The Wofford is a 1940'scustom wooden tour boat built in Ft. Lauderdale (along with an identical sister ship which was reportedly lost in a fire). Initially the Wofford served as a water taxi taking guest to and from the Wofford Hotel in Miami Beach and the mainland transporting numerous famous people presidents and mop gangsters (i.e. Al Capone Anthony Carfano and Frank Costello) who resided and operated both illegal gambling operations and legitimate hotels including Miami's Wofford Hotel. Later the Wofford served for many years in the waters of southern Florida and the Everglades as the Jungle Cruise until she was taken to New York City whereshe worked as a tour boat on the Erie Canal and the Hudson River. In September 2011 the Wofford made the trip south and is now in Crystal River Florida where she is in need of some TLC to complete her next chapter.All offers considered
