 Waverley

The P S Waverley was built on the River Clyde for the London & North Eastern Railway and launched in 1946, continuing a name used for earlier paddle steamers. She served with the LNER and Caledonian MacBrayne, sailing in Scottish waters, until she was acquired by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society in 1974.
 
The last sea-going paddle steamer in the world, Waverley's continuing operation owes much to public and private donations and volunteer effort. She now sails regularly each year between Easter and October covering the Clyde, Bristol Channel and South Coast of England.
