Introducing our Vintage Yacht, Journey!

The Journey Continues…

We are excited to announce Journey, our newest addition to the Prince Charters fleet.  Journey is a stunning 1968 Hatteras – vintage to the core.  She is Coast Guard Inspected for 30 passengers, and has been fully restored to her original beauty.

Captain Ward Hornblower Proescher and his lovely wife Susan are a beautiful part of Journey’s history.  Ward and Susan inscribed Journey inside their wedding bands to remind them of the importance of enjoying the journey towards goals. When they purchased their charming Hatteras boat in the early 1970’s, they renamed her Journey.

Together Ward and Susan founded Hornblower Yachts, which they ran together until 1980. In 1986, they started Commodore Cruises & Events with Journey.

Ward, lovingly called “Skipper” by his grandchildren, enjoyed spending time with family and friends and, ever the Captain, spent as much time on the water as he could until his passing on April 9, 2015.

Today Captain Doug and Donna and their children are honored to bring the Proescher’s family history with Journey along with us on their journey through life together.
