WAVERLEY Steamer Enters Dry Dock At Greenock For Repairs

23 April, 2021 | Clyde Shipping, Local

ICONIC paddle steamer Waverley is at Greenock for her annual dry-docking.

The vessel left her winter berth in Glasgow on Wednesday afternoon under her own power to sail down the Clyde.

She berthed at Greenock’s Custom House Quay and has now successfully been moved into the drydock at Dales Marine’s Garvel yard.

Waverley’s bow will be repaired, several paddles and some steel will be replaced in the port paddle box will be replaced, the hull will be painted, and a full survey of the hull will be undertaken.

Waverley Excursions stated: “Dry-docking Waverley is the single largest expense of the winter refit and it is being funded thanks to those who have continued to support the ship.

“The Covid-19 Relief Appeal has now reached £330,000 — we are deeply grateful to everyone that has donated.”
