Like many Scarano boats, Northern Lights was designed and built in close cooperation with her new owners, in this case the Lake Champlain Transportation Company, which operates the ferries that cross Lake Champlain on a daily basis when the ice does not prevent travel. She is a very efficient performer despite her heavy build, necessary to withstand the thick ice in Lake Champlain in which she spends her winters. Her owners operate her at far less than her designed capacity to provide their customers with a more luxurious experience on this yacht-quality excursion boat. Like her close cousin Adirondac, which operates on Lake George, the unfinished hull was delivered on her own bottom using a temporary helm station and subsequently completed on site by a Scarano crew.
Classic Harbor Line of New York now owns and operates the yacht Northern Lights.
Take a cruise on Northern Lights, a Turn-of-the-Century inspired yacht that is available daily to take guests on cruises through Boston Harbor to see Boston’s iconic waterfront sites and monuments. Northern Lights measures 110-feet in length along her waterline and expands to a 28-foot beam. She was built with a beautiful mahogany bar, ceiling accents, ceiling trim, and railings.
