105' | Custom Wilmington Boat Works Classic | 1929
Classic Antique Motor Yacht with Pedigree
"Sobre Las Olas" was built in Wilmington, California. Built with an unlimited budget, the craftsmanship reflects an era long past. Two of her famous owners were J. Paul Getty and William Randolph Hearst. Over the years she has undergone renovations and was in charter between Seattle, WA and Alaska. At present she is one of the largest antique classics on the West Coast.
The current owners have since added a superstructure over the back deck, installed new wiring and plumbing throughout, but decided to keep the original 1929 Atlas Imperial diesel engines. It is said that there are only four of these engines left in existence to this day. A similarly constructed engine from the same era currently sits in the Smithsonian Institute.
