Just been reading a book on the pleasure steamers that used to ply the Yorkshire coast from resorts such as Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington.
The Coronia and Yorkshire Belle bring back memories and am considering building a model of one.
Has anybody any idea where I could find any plans?

Try Googling 'Yorkshire+Pleasure+Steamers'.
You never know summat might pop up!
Happy hunting, Tally Hoooo!
Maybe these guys can help, they are operating 'Yorkshire Belle #2' from Bridlington.

Thanks Doug,
Good suggestions. Have dropped a line to the Yorkshire Belle 2 organization and will let you know what transpires.
From the picture the vessel looks very much like the one I sailed in too many years ago to want to describe!

My pleasure Rowen,
Unless you were on her before (or on 11th April 1941 when she sank😲) #2 is almost certainly the ship you sailed in. 👍
Good luck with the plans. Ciao, Doug 😎

Hey Rowen, might be rather fun to build the 'Push Me Pull You' version 😉 MV Regal that was built for Oulton Broads and now operates from Scarborough!? 😁 Doug

Could be but I remember Yorkshire Belle and Coronia best. It was #2 though!
