THE CENTRAL-HUDSON STEAMBOAT CO.

Executive Offices, Newburgh, N. Y.                Herbert R. Odell, General Manager

 ONE OF THE FINEST STEAMERS ON THE HUDSON RIVER

The Benjamin B. Odell is unique, in that she is the first river steamer built in the United States under the rules of the English Lloyds. As a result of this, she is of a stronger and heavier construction than any other steamer in a similar trade in this country, having a carrying capacity of 3,412 passengers, 65 staterooms, with 6 large parlors and 6 bedrooms beautifully decorated, brass beds instead of metal berths, with which the other rooms are equipped. The ventilation and sanitation is as scientific as modern methods can produce to give comfort and rest.

This steamer is a steel-constructed propeller, 280 feet long and 50 feet beam, with a speed of 19 miles an hour. She has four decks extending the full length of the boat, and is a combination of passenger and freight carrier.

No other boat on the Hudson can offer greater accommodations, being especially designed for day, as well as night service. No vessel built for inland water service has so many comforts and conveniences to give rest and comfort to the tired traveler, who will appreciate these few hours of recreation. She is so constructed as to make travelling to points along the Hudson River safe and more convenient than by rail.

Every precaution that experience and foresight could suggest has been utilized by builders of this steamer for providing safety and comfort to her passengers. The main saloon and galleries, as well as the staterooms, are magnificently furnished. The interior and staterooms are large and comfortable. Everything that is modern and up-to-date has been used in con­structing this boat to secure comfort, pleasure and happiness.
