The Horicon
The Horicon is our 85 foot, triple deck, wooden yacht. She was lowered into the water in 1988 and has been a Lake George favorite ever since. The Horicon is the fourth commercial vessel to bear this name at Lake George. Built almost entirely of mahogany, teak, and yellow pine, this beautiful ship is glass enclosed on the first two decks. The third deck is an open observation deck.
