1967 - Paddle Steamers for Sale

Recommended Posts

I have just come across a 1967 advert (in a publication where it defo would not be expected) by AMC McGinnity & Partners of Weymouth offering for sale two post-war constructed paddlers available to view in South Wales, both in commission, one certified for 1000 the other for 800. Any ideas? It's not my field...

Thanks for this. They were advertised in the Showman's trade paper in September 1967 hoping, I think, to find a buyer who would use them as some kind of static attraction. It was a desperate move I suspect and despite the 'endless possibilities' mentioned in the ad I suspect the potential takers were few. Target was most likely the operators of seaside amusement parks.

No problems, glad they were the right ones, I had those two down for the ones in question but needed to see your pics first to know for sure.  Glad to be of help.
