Do you, or someone you know, have a passion for our maritime history? Then you, and they, will love The over 120 years old, she is a remarkable survivor from the steam age and a most unusual vessel. A small but incredibly powerful canal tug, she was built to tow long strings of barges laden with goods from the inland towns of Cheshire and the Potteries to the great seaport of Liverpool. She made her appearance on the Mersey at a time when old-fashioned sailing ships still jostled for space on the Liverpool waterfront with the great steamships and ocean liners of the Edwardian era.


This is why people return time and again to enjoy cruises onboard The Danny…. Beautiful scenery, interesting local history and all whilst experiencing the sounds and smells of an historic steamship…. But you will need to join us to savour that bit!
