Christopher Craven says
STELLA NOVA's original owner created a universally loved ship that would help in the discovery of the world's canals, rivers, seas and oceans in safety and in style. All those who've crossed paths with STELLA NOVA in the past would wish that her new owner would be touched by her rich and varied history in the same way that STELLA NOVA touched the lives of her voyagers over the last 50 years.
