Built in 1935 by Charles Hill & Sons at the Albion shipyards in Bristol, SEVERN TRAVELLER was originally a tanker ferrying oil and other goods up and down the river Severn. In 1957 she was converted to a passenger vessel with the capacity for 180 passengers. Under new ownership she is undergoing conservation and will be converted to a houseboat.
