50 years of legacy

“It was a handsome vessel with clean, smooth lines and a stout funnel.”

Formerly named Overchurch, later MV Royal Daffodil – during her lifetime she carried countless passengers across the River Mersey over 50 years of active service. From fond memories of family trips or connections to seafaring past, Daffodil embodies a shared social heritage that means so much to all.

To celebrate this rich history and her revival, a series of short documentaries will be released to recount the vessel’s legacy, capturing the collective effort behind her grand return – starting with “Episode One – Heritage”.
