HMS Completes Purchase of American Queen

August 12, 2011

HMS Global Maritime completed the purchase of the steamboat American Queen.
Built in 1995, the American Queen, at 419-feet long, is the largest, most opulent riverboat ever built and offers 222 staterooms and suites that accommodate 436 guests attended to by a crew of 160.
John Waggoner, President and CEO of HMS Global Maritime state, “I am thrilled that this acquisition is finally complete. It has been a long, windy and challenging road, but we finally made it to the end. Having the American Queen ply the waters of the mighty Mississippi and its tributaries is a piece of Americana that should be returned to service. Furthermore, the 250 jobs that this vessel will create will help stimulate the economy.”
Voyage lengths will range from three nights to fourteen nights, detailed itineraries and fares will be available next month.
