A Letter from the New Owners

It is with great humility and a sense of honor that we have taken ownership of Indiana’s Largest Boat. Being local to the community, we fully understand the historical significance of The Madam Carroll and great responsibility that comes with operating such a profound vessel. We are looking forward to a wonderful second year in operation and lots of in store!

We would encourage fans of the Madam Carroll and residents of the Monticello area to submit their emails below so we can supply our patrons with timely news and updates as we prepare for the coming year.
