The Nomadic Charitable Trust is committed to restoring S. S. Nomadic, the last floating link to RMS Titanic and the White Star Line, in time for her centenary celebrations in 2011. Designed as a “mini Titanic” and exactly a quarter of Titanic’s size, Nomadic was built to ferry first class passengers out to Titanic from Cherbourg. Even after Titanic’s fated voyage, Nomadic continued to work as a tender and troopship, even a floating restaurant – up until the 1990’s.
Nomadic returned home to Belfast in 2006 following 95 years after she first set sail, a truly unique and authentic piece of Belfast’s ship building legacy. She still boasts many original features that were hand crafted by the workmen of the ship yard and were identical to the design of Titanic and Olympic.
SS Nomadic has recently achieved Core Collection status on the National Register of Historic Vessels (NRHV). This significant development sees Nomadic join an elite group of just 61 Core Collection vessels which also includes the world famous Cutty Sark, Mary Rose and the Royal Yacht Britannia.
