National Historic Ships UK

SS Explorer wins 1 of 4 National Historic Ships UK New Regional Virtual Flagship Awards.

The team on the SS Explorer are happy to announce that we have been named as the Regional Flag ship for Scotland East in this years National Historic Ships UK 2020 Flag ship Awards. 

The awards usually reflects the cruising programme or visitor numbers of each craft. Instead, for the first time, applications were open for ‘virtual flagships’ in recognition of the fact that many historic vessels have had to cease operations, cancel or postpone events through circumstances beyond their control.

As a Flagship the SS Explorer is expected to actively promote the role of National Historic Ships UK by sharing social media posts, publicising activities such as the annual Photo Competition, the Excellence in Maritime Heritage and Marsh Volunteer Awards and fly the flag as ambassadors for the UK’s maritime heritage sector.
