A launch used to ferry passengers out to the Titanic has been saved from the breakers yard.

The British Government has bought the Nomadic for two hundred and fifty thousand euros at auction in Paris.

The elegant vessel built a year before the infamous liner spent years tied up in Le Harve and faced being scrapped.

She is being brought back to Harland and Wolff to be restored and become a centrepiece of Belfast's planned Titanic quarter.

Nomadic is at last returning home. Hopefully I can bring you pictures of her return & hopefully her restoration, as my work envolves the Harland and Wolff site.
Check out my other pictures of the shipyard & some of Nomadic last year.

Here's the link to the news story

Oh that's great! I have to go see this exhibit when it opens! I'm glad they were able to save the Nomadic- it's one of the only huge pieces of Titanic history that we have left.
