The Grand Romance Riverboat was built in a sand lot near the Noyo river in Fort Bragg, Ca. by Daniel Steel Co. and the Barker Family. Construction of the Grand Romance, California’s only true sternwheel riverboat, began in mid-October 1990.

Out-fitted with cast Victorian ironwork from the Old South, towering twin smoke stacks and a 43 note calliope it is the grandest authentic riverboat to operate in California. Its interior features a two-story high Grand Ballroom with a red velvet stage, gleaming marble dance floor and polished brass and stamped tin ceilings.

The upper deck of the Grand Romance Riverboat has covered verandas to enjoy the view and a 100 seat murder mystery showroom where multiple murders take place every weekend.
