(formerly: Rock Island, Illinois)
For a long time this boat was called "Jumer´s Casino" and was serving, well, as a floating casino at Rock Island, IL. The boat is decorated in the old steamboat style and has a very nice interior. It was commissioned by Peoria hotel magnate Jim Jumer who also built the "Spirit of Peoria" based at Peoria, IL. The "Jumer's Casino" Rock Island boat is a larger, nearly identical version of the Spirit of Peoria. Since April 2009 the Rock Island boat has been docked at Hamm's Holiday Harbor in Chillicothe, IL just north of Peoria awaiting a proper buyer.
