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 900 members of the SBA, in over 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.
The SBA celebrated the 50th Anniversary of its foundation at a special Rally on Windermere in August 2021. Find out all about it here.
We organise regular social meetings (and online meetings nowadays), 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.
Members of the SBA will find a complete library of 187 editions of 'The Funnel'. There are copies of the SBA's Steamboat Registers from the 1980s and from 2000 onwards to browse through. And you can now view and search the current Steamboat Register online.
