Residents along Keuka Lake will be able to breath a sigh of relief soon. They have had to look at the former Keuka Maid tour boat for several years, just sitting at the dock, rotting away before their very eyes. At the end of this month that will no longer be the case as the once famous dinner and tour boat will be auctioned off later this month.
The Keuka Maid and all of its restaurant equipment inside will go to the highest bidder October 22nd at 11 a.m.
The Keuka Maid has been out of service for several years after new state inspection laws went into effect. The Town of Urbana has been trying to evict the boat from its dock since 2010.
A jury recently ruled that the boat was squatting in its current location.
