***WAVERLEY WITHDRAWN FROM SERVICE***

It is with deep regret we must inform our loyal customers and supporters that Waverley has been withdrawn from service.

Waverley Excursions Ltd General Manager, Paul Semple has made the following statement.

“Today I have to announce that following extensive efforts to repair Waverley’s boilers we have reached the conclusion that we must stop repairs. We now know that to give Waverley a future she will need new boilers.

The challenge ahead is significant and unlike previous challenges the ship has faced in the last 45 years through her preservation. I am personally appealing to anyone that wants to see this historic ship sail again. I know first-hand the fondness that the general public have for Waverley and I know this news will be upsetting. However, Waverley can sail again if we can raise the funds required to purchase and install new boilers.

The Registered Charity which owns Waverley will shortly launch an appeal to save the ship and ensure she sails again. The cost of the required works is significant but if every passenger who would have sailed this year donated the cost of their ticket towards our appeal we will return Waverley to steam. More than ever we need support to preserve this iconic vessel as the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world.”

Donations can be made now via our website or by texting STEAM 20 to 70085 to donate £20.

Please share to help us save Waverley.

Two brothers, Colin and David Richardson, would like to mark the 75th D-Day anniversary this year by rowing a replica Cockleshell Heroes canoe from Portsmouth Harbour on the 5th June, arriving at Pegasus Bridge in Normandy for the D-Day service on 6th June. The 'Peggy Paddle' will be done in aid of the Parachute Regiment Association, from which Colin and David are now retired. They are keen for a safety vessel to escort them overnight on this special crossing (ideally a motorboat able to carry them and their kayak if required). If anybody would like to get involved, please let Ben at the Marina Office know.

Where we began with F8, a very broken little boat in need of a lot of love. Vessels like this that have served their country deserve every right to be brought back to original glory. This is where we come in! But she needs to go right back to bear frame to do this! Watch this space for the restoration story!! 😀

We might have been a little quiet lately, that's because we have been busy. The CMB has taken a huge step forward as the engine beds and moulds have been erected. Yes, its upside down, yes, it looks like a dinosaur, yes, its weird but we are getting very excited.

Pier Of The Year 2018 is Southsea South Parade Pier!

Southsea South Parade Pier has been awarded the coveted accolade ‘Pier of the Year’ by members of the National Piers Society narrowly beating Felixstowe in second place, and Worthing in third. The award is in recognition of the commitment and investment the Ware family and their associate Bob Pettett have devoted to the 110 year old pier which allowed its re-opening in April 2017 after five years of closure during which time the pier suffered decay and storm damage. Now once again playing an important part in the tourist economy of the area, encouraging inward investment and injecting civic pride, the pier richly deserves the accolade ‘Pier of the Year’.
