History of the Viking Ship

The ship has great character and is registered with the Heritage Boat Association and because of the Viking History attached to this area is a 'theme vessel' and is a 21 metre long wooden  replica of a Viking Knarr and is the longest serving timber passenger ship on the inland waterways in either Ireland or the UK.

The Viking Ship in a former life circa 1930 plying as MV Britannia out into the North Sea from Bridlington, Yorkshire. It arrived in Bridlinton in 1923 having been built at Southend-on-Sea.

This National Historic Ship is a semi-open vessel with two thirds of it roofed and half of it side screened. In fine weather most of the vessel can be open so as to create a cooling breeze and a lovely athmosphere and experience of cruising on water.
