Newly renovated in 2005/06, Chicago's Fair Lady offers a spectacular cruising experience. Her open‑air upper deck is large, spacious and suitable for dancing under the stars or just gazing at Chicago's world renowned skyline. The interior salon features air‑conditioned comfort, carpet, granite marbel restrooms, mahogany paneling. Large panoramic windows, a spacious bar and dining area. Chicago's Little Lady, the smaller twin vessel to Chicago's First Lady, also reflects the handsome elegance of the early 20th century luxury yachts. Her intimate space includes an upper open‑air deck as well as a temperature‑controlled carpeted main salon richly decorated in mahogany and brass tones. For important yet small outings of 2‑6 passengers, Lady Grebe, is a 48 ft mahogany wood yacht built in Chicago in 1961 perfectly preserved for your special private cruise on Chicago's River or Lakefront.
