SS Nomadic was commissioned by White Star Line to serve Olympic class liners RMS Olympic, Titanic and Britannic when calling in Cherbourg. Built in Belfast alongside Titanic’s construction site, she was made with the same steel, built by the same workers and decorated by the same craftsmen. Because her duties were to serve first and second class passengers, she was fitted out far more luxuriously than other tenders of that time and she was considered by the White Star Line as a window into the sumptuous new transatlantic liners. The little tender has a tremendous story, surviving both world wars, escaping destruction many times, and now restored to her former glory as a tourist attraction in Belfast. AUTHOR: Philippe Delaunoy is trustee of the Nomadic Preservation Society. He spent nearly two decades researching and gathering stories and images on Nomadic and helped with the ship’s restoration. He is also International Coordinator of the British Titanic Society (BTS), the webmaster of the only website dedicated to SS Nomadic’s history: www.nomadic.info, and runs the Nomadic Collection Facebook group. He has written widely on Nomadic in Belgium, and collaborated with Belgian TV and Radio Channels on RMS Titanic related shows. He lives in Belgium.
