The Nomadic, built a year before the Titanic, was a luxury ferry that transported first class passengers to the doomed liner. It’s up for auction and there’s a campaign to take it back to Belfast.
Nomadic saw service in both world wars and was later used as a restaurant on the Seine in Paris.
More recently, it has been languishing semi-derelict in the port of Le Havre.
A feasibility study by Belfast City Council estimated the cost of buying the ship and bringing it back to the city would be around £750,000.
It would then need about £7m to restore the ship to its former glory.
