Since 1974, the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world has been owned by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society. Purchased from Cal-Mac for a pound, she has since been restored twice and still sails around the coast of Britain, reviving the hey-day of pleasure cruising in the Clyde, Bristol Channel, South Coast and the Thames. Now forty years in preservation, this is the story of the Waverley's successful career, for the Caledonian Steam Packet Co., Caledonian-MacBrayne and Waverley Excursions. It looks back at a career of some sixty-six years, forty of which have been in preservation. Using newly-published and rare images, the ship's career is recorded by two experts of the paddle steamer world.
