WAVERLEY WITHDRAWN FROM SERVICE

Waverley Excursions Ltd deeply regrets to inform our loyal customers and supporters that Paddle Steamer Waverley will not operate in 2019.  As part of the winter maintenance programme we have been undertaking boiler works. Unfortunately, after extensive consultation and investigation it is now conclusive that the ship’s boilers require replacement.
We immediately face a significant challenge to raise the required funds to reboiler Waverley and return her to service. Waverley is owned by a Registered Charity which will shortly be launching an appeal to ‘Save the Waverley’ and ensure she sails in 2020. We fully appreciate any support at this time to help return Waverley to steam. Please donate now by clicking here.

this is my pride and joy of Waverley. I hope they can do the repairs, as I still haven't been on her yet. last time I booked to go on her they cancelled it. but I hope one day soon I will make it  scratch

Thanks for putting this up David 2thumbsup , I had no idea she was in trouble, I have just donated £25 to the cause to try to keep the wheels turning, please excuse the pun, one day I would love to take a trip on her. 2thumbsup

Edit. I have also shared this with my Facebook friends and a group that I go on to try to get more folk to donate. I think you can donate as much or as little as you can afford as it is mainly donate by PayPal.

she's a wonderful ship to sail on...……...been on her over the last 18 years or so many times...…..fabulous cruises from Largs and Keppel piers…..the last time she was in trouble a wonderful couple from Largs who won £165,000,000.00p on the Euro lottery donated £750,000 to her upkeep ………..so I'm sure they might be stepping up to the mark again with the old girl...……..she is a national treasure and a great asset to the town of largs from which she sails daily through the summer months...……...I don't think the dosh will be long in coming.
