The Steamship SS Delphine is a classic yacht commissioned by Horace Dodge, co-founder of Dodge Brothers the automobile manufacturers. The yacht was launched on 2 April 1921, and spans 258 feet (79 m).
   
 
In 1997 she was restored at a cost of $60 million to the original 1921 condition including interior decor and the original 4 stage steam engines. She was rechristened Delphine by Princess Stephanie of Monaco on 10 September 2003
