Rare opportunity to own the yacht known as "THE QUEEN OF THE COLUMBIA". Designed and built by Joseph M. Dyer, she was launched in Astoria, Oregon on January 19,1936 for Dr. Harworth of Portland, Oregon and later purchased by the U.S. Coast Guard in 1942. She served during World War II, patrolling the Columbia River and guarding the Kaiser Shipyard in Vancouver, WA.

After the war, Phantom sat for years at Chinook, WA, then stolen by thieves in the 80's and run aground. The owner burned up the engines trying to "get her off". She then went to Kalama, WA to have the engines overhauled, where she sat for many years.

Fortunately  "found" by an Antique Classic Boat Society member, a transformation to her former glory was made. Without regard for expense, Phantom was replanked, refastened, rewired and repowered ! 

The hull of Phantom was made of double-planked Port Orford cedar on white oak frames. All of the exterior woodwork, including the decks, were made of TEAK. The wood walls of the interior are rich Honduras mahogany ! A bathtub remains in the aft stateroom.

Phantom is not your average restoration of a Classic Bridgedeck Yacht, the modern twin Yanmar  turbo diesels, move her over 21 knots !!!

Since the restoration, Phantom has been in her own boathouse on the Columbia River at a local Portland Yacht Club.

Boathouse is available and seller encourages a "package offer" !

Included are all related articles, pictures, radios, memorabilia.

 Dr. Harworths sister, "Rita Hayworth" is reported to have cruised on Phantom .
