That would be J and K Steamboat Company of Grand Ledge. https://www.michiganprincess.com/Our-Boats
They currently have three riverboats in service: the Michigan Princess on the Grand River in Lansing, the Grand Princess based out of Grand Ledge (but truck-able to other inland water locations) and the Detroit Princess in Detroit. They also have a new-build aluminum-hull river boat under construction in Grand Ledge. It was started many years ago before the company founder passed away, and appears to be only worked on when time permits. They also have one or two older, out of service small river boats in their yard. I think one was the Princess Laura.

If they did purchase the Diamond Jack, it will be interesting to see where it is based out of.

Noticed that the Diamond Jack departed the Detroit area with no fanfare and headed upbound Wednesday to Port Huron, then at least Cheboygan as this post is written. Does anyone know who bought her and intended use? Good little mini ship that brought fun and fond memories to many.
