De Wadden ~ The last Harbour

By trihelm
De Wadden was a trading ship that carried timber, stone & grain between Liverpool and Ports in Ireland between 1922 & 1961. She was the last ship working on the Mersey to use sails and was built in 1917 by Gebr van Diepen of Waterhuizen in the Netherlands. De Wadden was built with sails and an engine but only used sail power when the motor needed extra help. She was eventually purchased by the Merseyside Maritime Museum, Liverpool in 1984.Since then conservation has been ongoing to stabilise her and she has continued to be drydocked next to the Liverpool Pilot Cutter, EDMUND GARDNER.
