History

ANNIE MELLOR is a passenger vessel built in 1935 with a capacity for 108 passengers. 

The vessel was built for Sir George Mellor by Borwick & Sons and launched on Lake Windermere. At the time there was seating for 120 with accommodation for 40 in the cabin which was furnished in blue velvet with mahogany and brass fittings.

Based at Keswick in the Lake District, she operates cruises on Derwentwater. In 2008, she underwent a total rebuild.
