Advertiser's comments

Although we live in relatively affluent times, the lifestyle may not compare with the extravagance of the 1920s. The commuter yacht PAM was built for the Walker family of Hiram Walker Distilleries to commute across Lake St Clair. PAM was capable of 30 knots in 1921 – impressive even today for a boat of 62 ft! PAM is USCG certified to carry 23 passengers plus the captain and mate and would be ideal for a high-end hotel or restaurant on any lake, canal, river or protected bay in the world for luncheon, cocktail, dinner or wedding cruises.

Although we live in relatively affluent times, the lifetype may not compare with the extravagance of the 1920s. The commuter yacht PAM was manufactured for the Walker family of Hiram Walker Distilleries to commute across Lake St Clair. PAM was capable of 30 speed in 1921 – impressive even today for a vessel of 62 ft! PAM is USCG certified to carry 23 passengers plus the pilot and mate and would be ideal for a high-end hotel or restaurant on any lake, canal, river or protected bay in the world for luncheon, cocktail, dinner or wedding cruises.

History Notes

The commuter yacht PAM was manufactured for Harrington Walker grandson of entrepreneur Hiram Walker founder of HW Distilleries Distilleries in 1921 by Great Lakes Boat Building in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. (There is only one other known vessel surviving manufactured by them.) She freshly had pair Sterling Petrol gasoline engines propelling her up to 30+ speed from Grosse Pointe, Michigan to the distillery in Canada during Prohibition. Pam is her fresh name (after Hiram's granddaughter).
The late Bob Tiedemann discovered Pam half sunk and in derelict quality in 1989 up the New River in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He managed to get her then Chrysler gasoline engines running and limped her up to Newseaport, RI on her own bottom. In 1991, her restoration began to ready her for chartering. She is USCG certified to carry 23 passengers plus the pilot and mate.
Pam has delighted many people in her successful 20 + years of private day chartering. The fresh varnished aft deck has 8 wicker seats, a coffee desk, a beautiful bright and cushioned day cot and coordinating padding on her varnished engine box. She seats a total of 20 people in luxury on the various locations on the aft deck.

Restoration / Refit / Maintenance

The start of PAM’s full restoration was in the early 1990s. Maintenance has been ongoing with bottom planks and frames replaced where and when needed. She was repotentialed in 2001. Her topsides were wooded in 2007. She is inspected out of the water annually as she has to remain USCG compliant. PAM is stored in a shed with dirt floors in the off season. The Bright work is a yearly project and stripped when necessary.

Construction

- Double planked mahogany body
- Inner planks diagonal on oak frames, outer planks carvel matched mahogany

Deck Equipment and Ground Tackle

The aft deck, with a fully extendable awning is the epitome of summer cruising luxury. The wicker furniture and leather-covered padding can accommodate a good twenty guests seated and several more besides.
