MV Balmoral Fund

cid:image001.jpg@01D0303D.DAA59F50 MV Balmoral is owned by the “MV Balmoral Fund Ltd” a registered charity (1155339).  Its aim is to preserve this historic vessel in operating condition.  After 2 years laid up by the Waverley organisation, Balmoral was returned to coastal excursion work in 2015 operated by White Funnel Limited, the trading subsidiary of the Fund.  This was achieved thanks to the herculean efforts of the many people who love and care for the ship and with the support of the Coastal Communities Fund.

Balmoral continued to operate summer excursions until the end of the 2017 season.  Both 2016 and 2017 proved to be very challenging, especially the latter year with a combination of extreme weather and technical issues.

The ship is now laid up in Bristol awaiting the money necessary to enable her to meet ever more stringent regulations and to restart the business.
