Clyde ship homeward-bound from Hawaii

UK News | Published:

The Falls of Clyde has been a visitor attraction in Honolulu harbour for many years.

A Clyde-built ship is to return home after years spent as a visitor attraction in Hawaii.

Built in 1878 in Port Glasgow, the Falls of Clyde is currently moored in Honolulu harbour.

A group campaigning to bring her back to Scotland says it has agreed a deal with a Dutch company to collect the ship in February next year.

It is hoped a mooring can be secured in Greenock near to where she was built.

The Falls of Clyde transported sugar from Hawaii to America’s west coast during the early part of her life before being converted into a bulk oil tanker.
