M/V Alton Belle, the former 156 ft. casino vessel
is being converted to dinner cruise service by Cape Fear Riverboats
of Wilmington, N.C. Renamed Henrietta III, the vessel's engineering will be completed by DeJong & Lebet Naval Architects.
The vessel operated for several years in Alton, Ill. after undergoing a lengthening and conversion for casino service in 1991. This marks the second casino-into-dinner vessel conversion for DeJong & Lebet - the company initially converted Celebration Cruises' Joe Schadler, which was later renamed Celebration Belle.
