SS Lane Victory CLOSED icon | Visit | Lane Victory Maritime Center
We regret to report that the SS Lane Victory has temporarily suspended its Cruise Schedule.

This is because during our last sea trials in preparation for cruises, a number of steam generating tubes in the port boiler failed.

SS Lane Victory SHIP MAINTENANCE icon | Visit | Lane Victory Maritime Center
Being a 70 year old historic and heroic vessel, repair will require the fabrication of new boiler tubes, installation, testing and trials again.

This process is estimated by our contractors to take quite some time and cost us a tremendous amount of money (in the $7M range).

SS Lane Victory SUPPORT SHIP REPAIR icon | Visit | Lane Victory Maritime Center
This untimely repair is costly and your continued support in both work effort and monetary contributions is essential to get her steaming once again.

We invite you to visit the SS Lane Victory and tour the ship and museum as she will remain open on Wednesdays and Saturday from 10pm to 4pm, and Sunday (by appointment).
