Ship Ahoy 2014

Following the success of the Ship Ahoy Maritime Heritage Exhibition, which was held in April this year, the Ship Ahoy Team have decided to mount a similar exhibition, in a new venue, on Saturday 5th April 2014.

The venue  for Ship Ahoy 2014 will be The Tall Ship sailing vessel Glenlee, which is moored on the River Clyde adjacent to the Riverside Museum.

As before the organisations taking part will be the Clyde River Steamer Club, West Highland Steamer Club, Coastal Cruising Association, Paddle Steamer Preservation Society, Model Steamer Club, Friends of Glenlee and MacBrayne Circle.

It is hoped that short tours will be available on board a preserved MacBrayne’s bus giving participants a flavour of old-time bus travel. Other vehicles from the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust may be available on the day.

As the vessel is open to the public the exhibition will open and close in accordance with public admission times which are 10am to 5pm.  Admission is free.

Catering will be available on board Glenlee throughout the day. Further details will be posted in due course.
