Goodbye Old Friend - MV Kirkland never to return again

Argosy Cruises announced on Monday that after 14 years of service, the iconic MV Kirkland will no longer cruise the waters of Lake Washington. The damage from an electrical fire in the engine room on August 28th was too extensive and the 104 foot ship has sailed from Kirkland Marina for the last time.

The 86-year old vessel which was placed on the Washington Heritage Register and National Register of Historic Places, was host to countless parties, celebrations and weddings. She will be sorely missed by the residents of Kirkland.
