Elkhart River Queen officially for sale

A well-known and iconic part of Elkhart could be closing.

The Elkhart River Queen is for sale.

Last season owner John Cleveland and his wife noticed a major leak.

They decided not to offer any rides on the boat last season or this one. In the past the boat would go up and down the St. Joseph River for a couple of hours on Sundays or it was available for private rental.

It's now publicly been put up for sale.

Cleveland says, “I'd like to see it stay in Elkhart and be repaired. Like some say they love seeing it go up and down the river but sometime you have to face reality on some things and this is one of them.”

If the boat sell doesn't in a year Cleveland says he'll sell it for scrap.

So far he hasn't received any serious offers.
