Winnipeg’s historic riverboat, the Paddlewheel Princess is up for sale.
Steve Hawchuk has owned the vessel for over 40 years and took out a listing for it on Saturday.
“I don’t want to see it just sit,” Hawchuk told 680 CJOB.
“It’s no good for it to just sit there and I spent a lot of money on it in 2010 getting it back into shape, but then I never used it after that.”
Hawchuk says he’s already recieved three offers for the boat and believes the riverboat business is still viable.
“I think it’s got a lot of potential here in Winnipeg,” Hawchuk said.
Hawchuk would not go into details about price, but his ad mentioned the ‘price (is) drastically reduced for quick sale’.
This is the second time he’s tried to seel the Princess after unsuccessful attempt in 2013.
