Windermere is famous for its ‘Great White Birds’ – the steamers are named TERN, TEAL, SWAN and SWIFT. The term ‘steamer’ is a slight misnomer because all the ships are now diesel powered.

The TERN and SWIFT were built for steam power in 1891 and 1900respectively. The TEAL and SWAN in 1936 and 1938.The livery of the ships is pure white with a thin gold line around them witha dark green bottom – hence the phrase ‘The Great White Birds’.
