Welcome aboard Waverley

Please Support Waverley’s 75th Anniversary Appeal

Maintaining one of the World’s greatest ship’s in seagoing condition is costly and requires support from many individuals and organisations. This winter we expect to spend £450,000 directly on Waverley as we undertake refit and maintenance work ahead of her Diamond Jubilee year in 2022. Fortunately there are some funds in hand but we need to raise £150,000 from individuals towards the refit costs. If you can donate to our 75th Anniversary Appeal we would be very grateful.

All donations small or large will be most welcome, if you can Gift Aid your donation this will add 25p to every £1 donated.  Everyone who donates £75 or more will receive a unique Waverley coaster as a token of thanks. Donations can be made online today or by calling our office on 0141 243 2224.

We have an Amazon Wish List where you can purchase items we need, click the link to view our list.

Waverley is now booked into dry dock in late-April with the aim of returning to service in May 2022. Annual Sailing Passes and Go Anywhere Vouchers are now on sale for the 2022 season.

‘A Diamond Waltz for Waverley’ can be purchased (just 79p) from iTunes and Bandcamp here. View the music video now on our YouTube Channel.

In 2022 we mark the 75th anniversary of Waverley’s maiden voyage on 16th June 1947.
