ST HELEN Retired

The final ship launched from the Leith Shipyards ST HELEN Ship No 535 has now been retired from British waters by her owners WightLink.

Retirement cake for the passenger ferry ST HELEN




St Helen retired after the 11:30 sailing from Fishbourne on Thursday March 26th after performing a final unscheduled round trip for invited guests, ex-staff and enthusiasts.

Amongst our guests were children from St Helen's primary school who were invited because her first passengers in 1983 were children of that very same school.

 

Her final traffic was led onboard by a 1983 Rover SD1 police car with it's blue lights flashing.

 

A buffet and cake was enjoyed onboard and she was given a salute of numerous blasts by St Clare as she left Fishbourne.
