Waverley Last Sea Going Paddle Steamer

Waverley Paddle Steamer

Built 1947 in the Clyde shipyards for over 900 passengers

2017 will mark 70 years since Waverley first sailed.

Waverley is one of the world’s greatest historic ships – the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world – magnificently restored with towering funnels, timber decks and gleaming varnish and brass. You can see and hear the mighty steam engines as they propel the paddles that take Waverley majestically through the sea.
