That this gorgeous, 112-year-old launch even exists today is a miracle in itself, not to mention its wonderful condition.
Built by the New York Boat Works, Arthur Fleming, attorney, lumberman, and philanthropist, named the launch "Aloha" and brought it to his summer home on Marquette Island, in the Les Cheneaux Islands of Michigan, around 1915.
It was purchased in 1975, and 7000 hours were spent in restoration from 1983 to 1987. It's been lightly used since. 
While the original engine had been lost to history, it's powered by a 1926 Red Wing 8 horsepower, two cylinder engine. The only concession to modern materials is the vinyl upholstery replacing the original leather. It travels on a custom-built tandem axle trailer.
Ready for show, or elegant cocktail cruising.
