We can be hired for private cruises or whilst static in one of our key locations such as Liverpool’s iconic Albert Dock – Other locations can be arranged on request.


Join us on-board a truly unique venue whether static or cruising.

As a former VIP passenger vessel, owned by The Manchester Ship Canal, The 1903 Daniel Adamson Steamship, affectionately known as The Danny, offers a grand Art Deco interior for events and meetings with the benefit of a large, covered, promenade deck with seating.

In 1936 the ship’s interior was carefully designed as a miniature version of one of the great liners of the day with snug but stylish saloons fitted out with a cocktail bar and wooden panels which were originally intended for one of the famous Oceanic fleet.

Today, The Danny, has been restored and is a unique example of the unapologetically modern Art Deco interior style with clean bold lines, geometric patterns and block colours.

In 2016 the interior was carefully restored and the carpets, chairs, fabrics and tables now in the saloons were all handcrafted locally to match the original 1930’s photographs, meaning today time spent in the saloons is exactly as it would have been in the 1930’s – making The Danny a truly unique and romantic venue which echoes a by-gone age of steam and style.

Hire prices – For cruising or static from our key locations in Liverpool’s Albert Dock, Ellesmere Port or Salford Quays prices are available on request. (other locations also available if required)

Capacities – Buffets available for up to 80 guests (with full use of the ship). Private seated dinner available for up to 45 guests (in the Art Deco saloons)

A fully licensed bar is also available and hot drinks can be served
