The Steam Boat Association of Great Britain was formed in 1971 to promote the enjoyment of steamboats and steamboating - and to represent the interests of steamboat owners.

There are over 1000 members of the SBA, in more than 20 countries around the world, who own over 400 working steam boats.

If you want to come and steam on a steamboat, build, renovate or buy a steamboat, or just learn about steam powered boats, come and join the SBA.

We organise regular social meetings, boat rallies and technical seminars. We publish a quarterly magazine 'The Funnel', packed with technical information, reports on steam powered ships and boats and information about the SBA activities.
