Welcome aboard Waverley

Waverley’s COVID-19 Relief Appeal

Built in 1947, Waverley is the “Sole Survivor” as the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world. Waverley made her triumphant return to service in August 2020 following her boiler refit. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions she was not able to operate a full summer season.  This means we are short of critical funds needed to make sure she survives the winter.

Your support would make a massive difference as we keep Waverley alive, her steam engine turning, and her paddles still beating.

Donations to Waverley can be one off or monthly by Direct Debit as a Friend of Waverley. All donations, large or small, are greatly appreciated and will help ensure that Waverley survives.
