SS Catalina Life Jackets - Extremely Limited Supply
Known to all Southern Californians as the "Great White Steamer", this historic vessel was built by William Wrigley in 1924 at a cost of one million dollars! The classic vessel elegantly transported passengers to the island of Catalina from the mainland. From 1924 to her retirement in 1975, she ferried over 2.4 million people to and from Avalon Bay on Catalina Island.

New, original with cotton tie straps. Some storage wear. Measures folded flat 21"L x 4½"W x 19"H. Weighs 5.22 lbs.
