Atlantic Marine Launches Casino Riverboat 'Emerald Lady'

Atlantic Marine, Inc., Jacksonville, Fla., recently launched the 201-foot, 1,000-passenger casino riverboat Emerald Lady for Steamboat Casino River Cruises, a leading developer of riverboat gambling in Iowa.

The Emerald Lady is the second of three dining/casino riverboats Atlantic Marine is constructing for Steamboat Development Corporation.

The first vessel, the Diamond Lady is due for delivery this month.

The sternwheel-driven, twin-screw Emerald Lady has an overall length of 201 feet, beam of 46 feet and draft of seven feet. She is powered by two Caterpillar 3412 diesel engines totaling 1,342 hp.

Featuring four decks, two casinos, two dining areas, three lounges, a children's activities area, gift shop and full-service galley, the Emerald Lady is patterned after the most successful sternwheelers of the late 1800s, the Hudson and Queen City.

She will service three Iowa ports-ofcall— Keokuk, Fort Madison and Burlington. She is expected to be delivered in April 1991.

The third of the three-vessel contract, the Golden Lady, will be slightly larger than her sisters at 227 feet and is expected to be delivered in June 1991.
