PHOENIX, N.Y. -- The last remaining American-made steam yacht is making its way down the Erie Canal. The 126-foot-long vessel named Cangarda, made a stop in Phoenix Saturday.
The crew has been on quite the journey, starting out in Isleborough, Maine in May, making their way to the Fulford estate in Brockville, Ontario, the vessel's former home port.
Now they are making the return trip home. Crew members say no matter where they go, the Cangarda is bound to catch people's attention.
"She causes quite a stir, she's pretty shiny and it's a type of design that nobody has seen for a long time. There's a lot of art in its design. It’s not a modern boat by any means,” said Steven Cobb, Cangarda Captain.
The yacht was built in 1901 and is one of only three left in the world.
