The MAJESTIC ist the last active historic showboat on the rivers. Built in 1923 the MAJESTIC and the sternwheel toawboat ATTABOY were sold to the Indiana University in 1959 and travelled along the Ohio River until 1965 when the Coast Guard decided that the wooden hull was too decrepit for travel. The boats were tied up at Jeffersonville, IN, where shows continued to be presented on th epermanentely moored vessel until it was sold to Cincinnati in 1967, where the MAJESTIC is still being used as an old-time showboat today.
