Shieldhall 2017
  Description
Shieldhall is a Heritage steam ship and a flagship of the National Historic Fleet. Recognised to be the largest working steamship of her type in Britain and probably Europe, she serves as a tribute to Britain’s maritime heritage and a living reminder of the golden age of steam.

Shieldhall is licensed to carry a maximum of 200 passengers, has a fully equipped galley serving hot and cold food, plus a licensed bar, and is available for charter or meetings both alongside and underway.

The Shieldhall preservation group, now officially known as “The Solent Steam Packet Limited” was set up in 1988 and has a membership of 800 people, worldwide. "Shieldhall" provides a unique opportunity for the general public of all ages to visit her and see her in action. The main work days for work parties are Wednesdays and Saturdays, between 10am and 4.30pm, but members do work on board most other days. We are always looking for people to help and if you haven't had previous experience, we have people that will help you learn.

The ship is operated by a fully qualified crew together with a shore-based support staff, all of whom are unpaid volunteers and relies solely upon revenue from fares and donations for survival.
Over the past 18 years, approximately 25,000 passengers have enjoyed not only the smooth and peaceful nature of steam propulsion but also the opportunity for supervised access to SS Shieldhall’s bridge, engine and boiler rooms thus providing a unique maritime heritage experience.

Since restoration to full working order in 1991, SS Shieldhall has provided the public with unparalleled heritage maritime experience through sea-going cruises in the Solent and along the south coast of England. The ship is operated by a fully qualified crew together with a shore-based support staff, all of whom are unpaid volunteers.
