OUR VESSELS

GENERAL SCHUYLER

 The General Schuyler is our 50′, 1900’s replica fantail launch. It features a 10.5′ beam, side weather curtains and a small restroom. Our beautiful launch will takes you back to the 1900’s when private yachts and steamers plied the lake. The Steamer Alice was the last great boat to allow guests to cruise the lake in such an elegant fashion over 95 years ago! The General Schuyler was originally built in Hartford Wisconsin in 2003 by Paul Raasoch. It was used as tour boat on the Rock River, a tributary of the Mississippi. Built with steel hull and finished with mahogany and oak, she truly brings back the 1900’s style. No details were overlooked from the brass fixtures to the wicker chairs! The General Schuyler was christened on Saratoga Lake in 2017 and named in honor of General Philip Schuyler, a well respected general during the American Revolution and founder of Schuylerville. The fantail launch is generally handles the Sunset and Lake Cruises. It is also well suited for private charters and parties with a capacity of 24 people. The seating area is covered for shade and we can often anchor this vessel for swimming during private charters. The General Schuyler is perfect for private parties, birthdays retirements and bachelorette parties!
