Duluth Welcomes Back The Vista Star TODAY
Whether you’re a tourist or a native of the area, a ride on one of the Vista Fleet boats is a MUST! For me, preferably a dinner cruise, but there are many different cruises available to fit everyone’s taste and style. Now, with the return of the Vista Star, there will be even more possibilities!
On April 24th at approximately 6pm CST the Vista Star will return to Port in Duluth, MN at its home dock behind the DECC. The Vista Star was brought to the Washburn, WI marina to be wintered and dry docked for its 5-Year Annual Hull inspection by the United States Coast Guard. The Vista Star will be viewable entering the Duluth Harbor of Lake Superior starting at 6pm on April 24th, 2012.
This will be the maiden voyage for the Vista Star under its new ownership Vista Cruises Inc. the corporation of Justin & Sarah Steinbach. Justin & Sarah Steinbach purchased the Vista Fleet on December 29th, 2011 after the season had closed. During the winter and spring months a large amount of updates and improvements have been made to the Vista Boats and Vista Gift Shop. The Vista Star was completely sanded and repainted, new propellers and bearings as well interior updates for better customer experiences. The Vista Star will now feature an all-new dinner menu in partnership with Savories Catering, new concessions featuring Caribou Coffee both on the boats and in the Gift Shop.
“We are extremely excited to bring the Vista Star Home and are thrilled at the updates and hard work that have been put in over the last few months by the entire team. Our goal is to create Great Experiences which Create Great Memories aboard the Vista Fleet and look forward to the support and feedback from the Duluth Community and tourists.”—Justin Steinbach
