Riverboat docks for repairs in Sneads Ferry

Published: Friday, January 24, 2014 at 02:31 PM.

The Liberty Belle attracted many admirers while anchored in Sneads Ferry, with many people taking pictures even throughout nighttime hours.

Liberty Belle sold at an auction in August in Baltimore for $357,200. The winning bidder was Julia Pledger representing Captain JP Cruise Line from Troy, N.Y., which purchases boats and refurbishes them to resell or lease. The 140-foot vessel will host dinner cruises when it reaches its final destination in Miami.

After repairs were finished on the vessel, the crew secured one final batch of food supplies and shoved off under their own power around midnight Wednesday, according to a Facebook post by crew member Kyle Fennell.

“It’s fixed and we are off to Florida,” Fennell wrote online.
