Fowey Shipping (More)

Photographs taken 2004 to 2015

More Shipping in and around Fowey Harbour

There has been a very varied range of vessels that visit Fowey! The harbour is always interesting, and there is always something going on. It is always an attraction when the larger ships visit.

Visiting Warships

Fowey Shipping HMS Cornwall
"HMS Cornwall", a Type 22 Frigate paying a courtesy visit to Fowey before she was decommissioned

Fowey Shipping HMS Enterprise
"HMS Enterprise", a multi-role Survey Vessel of the Echo Class
(quite a contrast of motive power in that photo!)

Visiting Cruise Ships

Fowey Shipping The World
On first sight, a new block of flats in Fowey???

Fowey Shipping The World
Nope! Just "The World" on a visit.

Fowey Shipping The World
"The World" - a live-aboard cruise ship
(I really really missed my opportunity here... I should have gone out in my boat that day...
...I could have claimed to have sailed around the World!)

Fowey Shipping Silver Whisper
Some cruise ships have to anchor outside the harbour, as the "Silver Whisper" did here.
(She's been inside the harbour before, but weather, time and tide do sometimes dictate where some ships anchor or moor)

(we were lucky enough to go aboard that day!)

Fowey Shipping Deutschland
A number of cruise ships call at Fowey, including the "Deutschland"

Visiting Sheds

Other Vessels

Fowey Shipping Salvage of Fishing Boat
Sadly some more tragic vessels appear, this being the salvaged wreck of the JMT M99,
a scallop trawler lost off Rame Head near the Eddystone Lighthouse, with the loss of one of its crew members.
