The Heritage Steamboat Trust

Can you help us with information or provide historical material?

The Trust are still collecting information about historic steam launches - these are vessels over 100 years old and less than around 80ft in length. If you have old photos, drawings or any information on these early launches, please get in touch so that we can continue to improve our records.

Ongoing work

We are digitising the extensive Steam Boat Association archive collection to make these publicly available where possible.

We also work other charitable organisations who are involved in conserving and operating steam launches. Two charitable trusts which have benefited from our support are The Thames Boats Trust and The Shamrock Trust, owners of the steam launches Cygnet and Shamrock respectively.

Please consider a financial contribution to help the preservation of historical steam launches
