Thea Foss

The Thea Foss made a stop at Rosario. Built as the yacht Infanta for actor John Barrymore Sr. (Drew's grandfather). The yacht was designed by Ted Geary and built as the yacht Infanta in 1930 by the Craig Shipbuilding Company of Long Beach, California. The Infanta spent World War II serving the U.S. Navy as the patrol vessel Amber. Foss Maritime purchased the THEA in 1950 and converted her back to a yacht.
