The Steamboat Association of Great Britain
We are celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2021
The 50th Anniversary Rally saw 50 steamboats
In sun, wind and ( of course, it's Windermere ) rain over 160 Members with 50 boats enjoyed a week of steaming, socialising and celebrating the SBA's 50th birthday.
The Steam Boat Association of Great Britain was formed in 1971 to promote the enjoyment of steamboats and steamboating - and to represent the interests of steamboat owners.
The SBA celebrated the 50th Anniversary of its foundation at a special Rally on Windermere in August 2021. Find out all about it here.
We organise regular social meetings (and online meetings nowadays), boat rallies and technical seminars. We publish a quarterly magazine 'The Funnel', packed with technical information, reports on steam powered ships and boats and information about the SBA activities.
Members of the SBA will find a complete library of 187 editions of 'The Funnel'. There are copies of the SBA's Steamboat Registers from the 1980s and from 2000 onwards to browse through. And you can now view and search the current Steamboat Register online.
Please help us bring the Steamboat Register up-to-date.
As part of the 50th Anniversary activities, the SBA will publish a printed edition of the Online Register later in 2021. If you have a steamboat that is recorded in the Register please have a look here and bring the entry up-to-date, and even add current photographs or YouTube™ video links. If you have a steamboat that is not yet in the Register, our Register Curator will help you get going with an entry.
