P.S. Waverley

Jul 18, 2011
The P.S. Waverley returns to her Home Port for the summer
The P.S. Waverley has returned to her Home Port on The Clyde this month. The P.S. Waverley is the last sea-going passenger carrying paddle steam ship in the world.  She is named after Scott's first novel.  She was built in 1946 and has been magnificently restored and offers a wonderful day out sailing down the beautiful Clyde. During the Tall Ships weekend in Greenock she carried passengers to have a close up view of these magnificent sailing ships.  It was a unique opportunity to view sail and steam in the one location. The Waverley is having financial difficulties due to the increasing cost of fuel and maintenance. This could be the last summer the Waverley sails.  The good news is that The Waverley is to feature in a Hollywood blockbuster staring Robert Downey Jn and Jude Law in The second Sherlock Homes film A Game of Shadows.  The ship's bosses are hopeful the high-profile appearance can help the struggling paddle steamer.   Insert is a photo of the Waverley passing Mckinroy's Point - Gourock at sunset.  Jack Glenny took this beautiful photo.  Jack is better known as a Greenock Burns Club Barb and international after dinner speaker.  A big thanks to Jack for sending me and allowing the photo to appear on the website.
