Built in 1945, here in Los Angeles, CA, the S.S. Lane Victory served with distinction during World War II, The Korean War, and the Vietnam War as well as in times of peace as part of the merchant fleet. After years of deterioration in mothballs, it took countless months of restoration to put her back into her original condition by volunteers of the United States Merchant Marine Veterans of World War II (the organization who maintains her today). Now a nationally recognized historic landmark, the S.S. Lane Victory serves as a living museum and memorial to the service and sacrifices of all Merchant Marine sailors and Navy Armed Guardsmen.
Unfortunately all "Victory at Sea" cruises have been suspended until further notice as we tend to our 70 year old boilers. We will cruise again! Please keep an eye here on the website for further announcements.
