WAVERLEY WITHDRAWN FROM SERVICE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 our we will lose her for ever  :(.
