MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - A classic, old-style luxury boat is about to made in Manitowoc.
The Burger Boat Company has won a contract to build a 98 foot steel passenger vessel for Chicago's First Lady Cruises.
It will be called the "Classic Lady" -- a sister ship to the "Leading Lady" that was made by Burger Boat two years ago.
Seacraft Design of Sturgeon Bay is designing the new boat. It will be styled after the luxury cruising yachts of the 1920's.
