The Pride of Sefton Narrowboat Committee is a registered charity (No. 1144393) and limited company (No. 7020791). We are totally independent of any official organisation, although we are grateful for any help and support from public or private benefactors.
The concept of the Pride of Sefton started at Birkenhead in 1981 and our first boat, Pride 1, was completed by the apprentices at Cammell Laird shipyard in 1982. The boat was named in December 1982 by HRH Prince Charles and the late Diana Princess of Wales in recognition and appreciation for all the hard work done by the people of Sefton.
The Pride of Sefton 2 was built in 2009/2010 and launched by Sefton Councillor Peter Dowd on 23rd July 2010. The ageing Pride of Sefton 1 was sold in 2013.
Pride of Sefton 2 continues to offer free trips to under-priviliged and disabled people as well as educational trips for the local community. These trips are financed through a combination of donations, grants and commercial trips made available to the general public.
