Experience Maine’s largest lake aboard the steamboat Katahdin!

A National Historic Site, the steamboat Katahdin, more than any other remaining piece of Moosehead’s history, reflects the many eras, interests, and industries of the region’s past and present. Built-in 1914 by the young shipyard Bath Iron Works, the Katahdin was later converted to diesel. Now in her second centennial, she is the final link to a bygone era. Affectionately called the “Kate”, she’s a beautiful vessel and a step into the past.
