Product Description:

You are looking at a life preserver off of the Great Lakes Freighter George M. Steinbrenner.  This Freighter was first known as the John Sherwin and it was built in 1906. It was used to transport bulk cargoes such as coal, iron ore, and grain. In 1910-1913 the Sherwin was inactive, but she was sold at an auction to the Lackawanna Steamship Company of Cleveland, Ohio.

In 1958 she was renamed Saturn to free up the name John Sherwin. Then in 1959 the Saturn was sold to the Kinsman Transit Company of Cleveland, Ohio, and renamed George  M. Steinbrenner.

In 1969 the George M. Steinbrenner was then renamed Kinsman Ventur.

She served from her launching in 1906 to her scrapping in 1974, in Germany.

This is an adult life preserver with the model number 32-Cork. It was made at the Atlantic-Pacific  MFG. CORP. in Brooklyn NY.

Many markings/stamps on this life preserver show it passed the United States Coast Guard approval.

This would be a great addition to any nautically themed room!

We did try to clean it up the best we could with soap and water.   This item will be sold as-is.


Width: 24″
Weight: 5.2 lbs.
