All you need to know about paddle steamer Waverley : her specifications, her remarkable history and independent advice to get the best out of sailing on her.
Waverley operates as a ship and heritage preservation venture, supported by customer fares, on-board food and souvenir sales and donations from supporters.
In practice, much of her fabric, except for the hull frames and the main engine parts, dates only from 20 when she was substatially rebuilt in two phases.
She rarely has to cancel cruises for technical reasons and it was electronics in her modern boilers, rather than anything to do with her age, which caused her to lose some sailing days in late 2016.
There were a number of other paddle steamers named Waverley operating in the UK, although none during the lifetime of this version of Waverley.Waverley is owned by the Waverley Steam Navigation Company Ltd (WSN)** on behalf of the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society (PSPS), which aims to preserve the two remaining operational British examples of this type of ship in sailing condition and assist in the preservation of other survivors.The Society has around 2800 members and is a registered charity.See the section near the foot of this page for more details.Although celebrating her 70th anniversary in 2017, little apart from most of her framework and much of her engine remains from her the Waverley of 1947.
