Route

Lairds Explorer - July 13th

The duration is approx. 4.5 hours

Visit the birth place of the Danny! The Danny was built by a fore-runner to the world famous Camel Laird ship yard called the Tranmere Bay Development Co which was a 50/50 JV between the Danny’s engine builders, John Jones and Camel’s. The slipways were the Dannny was launched were originally on land reclaimed in Tranmere Bay and this later became the site of the large wet-basin or dock at Cammell Lairds.

Special permission has been granted by Cammell Lairds for us to have the river gate to the basin removed near to High Water and for the Danny to enter the basin for a short circuit of the dock and get as close to her birthplace as possible. This is also a great opportunity to get up close and personal to a real working ship yard and maybe examine progress on the new Antarctic Research Vessel being built there, the RRS Sir David Attenborough.



PARKING: The Boat Museum at Ellesmere Port have very kindly agreed for our passengers to use their car park free of charge. Please show your support for the museum by visiting them before or after your cruise
