Waverley has been withdrawn from service for 2019 and urgently needs new boilers or she will never sail again. We need your support now to save this magnificent vessel. PLEASE DONATE TODAY AND HELP SAVE WAVERLEY.
Waverley urgently requires two new boilers to produce steam to drive her triple expansion engine that turns the massive paddle wheels. Without new boilers Waverley will NEVER sail again! Donate Now.
Our Save The Waverley Boiler Refit Appeal was launched in June with an appeal target of £2.3 million. This includes the cost of new boilers as well as other boiler room equipment and re-commissioning costs. By undertaking this extensive work Waverley has a future but funds must be raised quickly to ensure she can sail again.
By early August over £500,000 had been donated from individuals. We are now exploring all other possible routes of securing funding but further public donations will be required. If every passenger who would have sailed on Waverley in 2019 were to donate the value of their ticket the appeal target would be achieved!
Waverley needs YOUR support now. All donations, large or small, will help ensure this iconic ship steams again. All on-line and postal donations will be recorded on a Donor Wall aboard Waverley.
Those who donate at least £50 will receive an exclusive appeal pin badge, donations of £250 will also receive an exclusive Waverley print, donations of £1,000 will receive an invitation to a Re-Launch Cruise and donations of £5,000 will receive an “Experience Day” ticket with access to the bridge and engine room. Donations of £10,000 and over will be offered bespoke recognition. Please Donate now.
