Retro seems to suit New Yorkers’ palate. Besides the bateaumouche I mentioned in this post, (so-called not because they look like flies, rather the company is based in the Mouche section of Lyons, France) and the ones I abhor from a style perspective, here are some retro ones I like.

Valiant, below, has the same fantail steamer design, but is a “modern classic,” built in 2001 and 33′ shorter than Mariner III. Check out other fantail steamers, originals as well as replicas, at this fantastic link.

Even newer, Manhattan is a replica less than two years old.
