The SS Nomadic was originally built as tender for to RMS Olympic and RMS Titanic in 1910 and is the only surviving White Star Line steamship today.

SS Nomadic

She was last used as a floating restaurant on the River Seine in Paris. The ship’s owner went bankrupt and Nomadic faced the scrapyard. And a campaign was started in Belfast to bring her back to where she was built. It cost £171,320 of public money to buy the ship at auction and was restored by, among, others, the Belfast firm that built her – Harland and Wolff. The company is still based at the Titanic Quarter ! It was an a lovely quaint ship, smaller inside than I thought it would be and if you are in the area, it’s a nice thing to visit.
