Broad Ripple Boat Company in Indiana:
White River Paddle Wheel Boat Excursions


The Perseverance II was named after her predecessor who roamed the White River over 100 years ago. After spending time on the Morse Reservoir as the "Star of Cicero", she was abandoned and allowed to sink.

With three cranes, Captain McRee salvaged the vessel and hauled it to his ship yard. Using the finest materials, including walnut and white oak gathered from Central Indiana, the refit of the boat began in October 2007 and was completed July 2010.
