MAJESTIC I, Brooklyn, NY – 1955
The "MAJESTIC" from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY circa 1955. Captain Joe Majestic owned and operated this sturdy 45 footer. His brother, John Majestic built her in 1946 at Brooklyn, NY. Like many of the Brooklyn-based party boats, she was a member of the Sheepshead Bay Boat Owners Association as indicated by the "S.B.B.O.A." placard on her wheelhouse. Captain Marty Haines Jr. purchased her in 1967 and he sailed her from Perth Amboy, NJ until 1972. She was then sold and relocated to Key Largo, FL where she continued to operate as a party boat and is currently sailing from Florida as the commercial hook-and-line fishing vessel "PIRATES LADY".
