Launched on the 26th June 1877, the Motor Yacht Lady of the Lake_, one of the Ullswater Steamers cruising on Ullswater in the English Lake District National ParkPark is believed to be the oldest working passenger vessel in the world.

Lady of the Lake sank at her moorings in 1881 and was re-floated by a team of divers from Liverpool. She sank again in 1958 in a severe storm then in 1965 she was badly damaged by fire and was out of service for 14 years until Lord Wakefield had her restored and refitted ; she was re-launched on 19th May 1979 by William Whitelaw.

Ullswater ‘Steamers’ is an award winning Lake District attraction celebrating over 150 years of operating lake cruises on England’s most beautiful lake, Ullswater.

Ullswater Navigation & Transit Co Ltd started operating steamer services in 1859, carrying mail, provisions and passengers around the lake. ’
