Okanagan Lake's historic Fintry Queen is for sale

The historic Fintry Queen is up for sale, and it’s a bit of a fixer-upper.

The Fintry Queen was originally built in 1947 as a ferry between Kelowna and West Kelowna before the Okanagan Lake Bridge was built in 1958.

Owner Andy Schwab has decided to sell the boat for $550,000 after efforts to convert the boat into something usable did not go according to plan.

The 40-metre long, 326-passenger vessel has seen better days, but the seller sees that its potential is only limited by the imagination of its next owner.
