Accommodations & Layout

This stunning classic yacht was originally built for circus baron Charles Ringling and was named for Zumbrota Falls where the Ringling family lived.  She is arranged with an open-air foredeck with entrance to the salon via a door on port and starboard.  The beverage bar is forward on starboard with the galley across to port.  The main deck has settees aft of amidships to port and starboard along with several on her fantail.  A bridal suite below deck with a private head.  The 01 deck offers the wheelhouse forward and open-air passenger space aft.


The ZUMBROTA is in good condition. She is outfitted with teak decks, brass and polished woodwork.  The vessel did not operate in the 2020 season and is due her preseason maintenance. The USCG Annual and Dry Dock Exam Credit will be achieved prior to a Closing. The yacht offers a sleek style and wonderful viewing for passengers.
