City of Louisville sells Spirit of Jefferson

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A much needed financial boost came on Monday evening for the Waterfront Development Corporation.

The city has sold the Spirit of Jefferson.

The 54-year-old Riverboat was retired in the spring of 2017 and replaced with the Georgia Queen.

The boat sold online at auction for $149,000.

Still no word on who the winning bidder is, or where the Spirit of Jefferson will be headed next.
