There are only 200 surviving crash boats. They were kept a secret for 25 years after the Korean War.
Her status as a Canadian-owned vessel would have prevented her from ever being certified by the U.S. Coast Guard for charters had it not been for some smart persuasion with the local Congressman to have her deemed by Congress as "an historical vessel". After military service she was sold to a Canadian who re-named her "Magnum Force" and re-fitted her as a private yacht complete with staterooms, salon, and a Jacuzzi on the bow! Some of the original bunks remain. Recent renovations include a classic contemporary look with marble and natural wood accents.

We got married on the Dream Maker. The boat was beautifully set up and our wedding coordinators made everything run smoothly! I didn't have a single worry along the way. Fun was had by all! It doesn't get more Californian than that:)
