Lydia Eva YH80 built in 1930, the last steam drifter has returned to her home port of Great Yarmouth, after an extensive restoration facilitated by a heritage lottery grant & other grants as a floating museum of the fishing industry.
Steam drifters once filled the harbours as they worked down from Scotland following the Herring. Lydia Eva was, unusually, also capable of trawling outside the herring season.
Lydia Eva YH89, now has MCA-coding which enables us to take the ship to sea with passengers, up to 8 people can experience this unique experience, be a stoker, the driver or just enjoy the trip! For more details see our website www.lydiaeva.org.uk.
