Valulla
Catamaran Cruisers - Reeds River Cruises
 
This Simplon Postcards page is one of a series on the excursion ships and ferries of the River Thames in London. This page covers the Valulla of Catamaran Cruisers.
 
Valulla joined Suerita in the Catamaran Cruisers fleet in 1973. She is 112 grt, 78 feet long and carries 254 passengers. She was withdrawn on 30th September 2007 when Catamaran Cruisers ceased their tourist services to Greenwich. She was the last of the Catamaran Cruisers fleet to be sold when bought by Dave Reed and his brother in spring 2008, presumably for charter use on the Thames. I will add a link to the company when it sets up a website.
