 A National Historic Landmark

Built in 1926, the 174-passenger Delta Queen was the last traditional steamboat carrying overnight passengers on America's inland waterways.  She hearkened back to a bygone era with stately wooden cabins and hardwood-paneled public rooms.

As of June 2009, Delta Queen is docked in Chattanooga, Tennessee and has been converted into a hotel. Fans of the Delta Queen have been lobbying Congress to extend the exemption, allowing the boat to resume operations on the nation's rivers.

Delta Queen's owner, Ambassadors International, is looking for a buyer who is committed to returning it to the water.

The lease Ambassadors International signed with a Chattanooga entrepreneur to operate the Delta Queen as a hotel requires the ship's priceless wooden and brass interior as well as its machinery to be left intact so the vessel can someday return to cruising.






This Delta Queen riverboat paddle boat model features:

- Superior hollow hull, hollow hull construction (very important), weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 30 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures

-  No computer-printed paper deck

- >95% of parts are wood and metal

- The wheel works: it can be manually moved rotated

32"L x 10"W x 14" T

"HELLO FRANK. received model today [3/15/16] can't tell you in words how to describe this model. The detail is out of this world. Thank you very much for the lights, won't look the same without them. Got to mount the model and then enjoy. Thanks again and hope to do business again with you in the future. Bill"

"The model arrived today.  A day early. The hour spent unpacking it was well worth it. What a magnificent model. And it lights up... There was a second small lifeboat wrapped separately. I almost missed it. Some very minor damage to the gang way which was easily fixed with super glue.
