Motor Vessel Balmoral
The Balmoral was built in 1949 and initially operated as a ferry carrying up to 10 cars on the Southampton to Cowes crossing.
In the late 1960s she became part of P&A Campbell's White Funnel Fleet based in the Bristol Channel.
Since 1986, owned by the Waverley Steam Navigation Co. Ltd, she continues to operate excursions in the Bristol Channel and other UK coastal areas.
The Balmoral is on the Register of British Historic Ships.
