The 136 foot yacht ACANIA, built in 1930 for a supposedly secret owner — rumored to be legendary Chicago mobster Al Capone, is alive and kicking and now under restoration. The steel vessel, advanced for it’s era, is in remarkably original condition, and included odd accoutrements like piping leading nowhere (possibly to contain alcohol?), hidden cabinets and a secret bar. While the boat was built for a Wall Street tycoon, a duplicate, the Acania II, was built for an unidentified buyer. The boat has a long history of ownership, is now headed into the charter trade. It now has its own website: http://www.acania.net.
