Waverley Excursions

Introducing the new Chief Engineer: Anthony Byrne

Name: Anthony Byrne Position: Chief Engineer PS Waverley

Describe your Background – Marine Engineering, I started out as a craft apprenticeship in Cornwall then went to sea at the age of 30. What attracted you to Waverley? I retired back in November 2012 and began volunteering for the SS Shieldhall in Southampton. I saw the advert for Chief Engineer advertised in the Nautical Telegraph and decided to apply for the job

What have you been doing in your role? Since joining the company I have been working on-board the ship and been familiarising myself with the boiler and engine room as Waverley is completely new to me as my previous knowledge is of steam turbines.
What are you looking forward to? I’m very much looking forward to the season ahead and in particularly visiting the Western Isles.
