Lady ExpressThe Lady Express cruises at a crisp 24 m.p.h. She is powered by two catapillar 3412’s, producing 1100 horsepower each. She is of all-aluminum construction, 65 feet long and was built to Coast Guard specifications by Munson Marine in Edmonds, Washington.

The Lady Express is licensed to carry 130 passengers. Three years of relentless planning finally came to fruition in June of 1990, when the nearly $1 million investment was shipped from Edmonds to find her home on Lake Chelan.

During the Late Fall, Winter and Spring months the Lady Express runs for the convenience of our winter travelers. Her departure at 10:00am and return at 4:00pm best utilizes the daylight hours for passengers. The relaxing winter scenery and informative narration, from inside a very cozy cabin, make for a great day of travel and sightseeing.
