    This boat is under restoration at the moment by lots of local volunteers and some pretty skilled engineers working on the engines and stuff.. had a chat with the owner who allowed us to pop down and take some shots to try and get some local volunteers to help with the project. Great looking ship but they have one hell of a job on their hands!!

    The History
    Orestad was built in 1959 by Schlichting Werft, Travemunde, for HADAG, Hamburg, for harbour cruises and Cuxhaven-Helgoland excursions under the name Alte Liebe. She was chartered to Centrumlinjen, and served between Malmo-Copenhagen, receiving the name Orestad in 1962. In 1964 she transferred to a Trelleborg-Copenhagen route. During 1971-72 Orestad ran between Sonderborg-Eckernforde and Malmo-Copenhagen for Skanfahrts.
    In 1973 Orestad was bought by KG Seetouristik GmbH & Co, Lubeck, and given the name Baltica I (later Baltica). In 1977 Baltica was sold to Forde-Reederei GmbH, Flensburg, and renamed Habicht II. She was used on "butter boat" sailings on the Baltic coast of Germany, but was chartered to Oresundsbolaget in the summer of 1978 for Malmo-Copenhagen service. In 1993 ownership was transferred to the combined Forde Reederei Seetouristik, but she was laid up in 1994.
    In 1995 she received the name Princess Royal and was moved to Liverpool by her new owners, Mgrs. Bridgewater Leisure Ltd.

    Nice report. Kind of reminds of the Tuxedo Royale in Boro, although this is in much better condition!
