Charity description

Friends of TS Queen Mary logo
The Charity owns Britain's last turbine pleasure steamer, the historic TS Queen Mary. Currently laid up in James Watt Dock (Greenock) we aim to restore her and re-open her on the Clyde, as a heritage destination.

Having successfully returned TS Queen Mary to Scotland, the Charity’s vision is that she will be taken to a British shipyard for restoration.

We intend that TS Queen Mary then will become a 5* visitor attraction, on the Clyde.

She will enhance what is offered on the river, and compliment the Tall Ship Glenlee and the Paddle Steamer Waverley. But she will also be a unique “must see” destination in her own right, allowing visitors to experience the values, heritage, design and culture of the art-deco 1930s.

Those who sailed aboard her loved her. Numerous people and bodies in the United Kingdom, including our patron, the actor Robbie Coltrane OBE, have declared her an icon that must be preserved. Help us restore TS Queen Mary - the last of her kind!

Charity No: SC043623
