Owner auctions old Washington state ferry for over $200K

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — A former Washington state ferry was auctioned for more than $200,000, but the boat’s owner says the sale has not yet closed. The Olympian reported that the owner Greg Jones has yet to be paid and said he did not want to comment in detail about the transaction until he has more information. The ferry was listed on eBay under a 10-day auction that ended on Friday. Officials say the ferry attracted 130 bids, pushing the sales price to $205,100. Jones originally bought the ferry for $300,000 in 2017 and parked it at the Port of Olympia.
