Princess Pocahontas
Lower Thames & Medway Passenger Boat Co

Each image links to a larger copy which will open in a new window


This page is devoted to postcards and photographs of the Princess Pocahontas of the Lower Thames & Medway Passenger Boat Co, who operate the Princess Pocahontas on excursions and charters, and the Duchess M on the Tilbury-Gravesend ferry. Lower Thames & Medway - Page 2 shows images from a Gravesend-Greenwich-Chelsea cruise on Princess Pocahontas.
 
Princess Pocahontas was built in Rendsburg as the Kieler Verkehrs-AG ferry Laboe in 1962. She operated in the Kiel Fjord. She was 33.51 metres long and 140 gross tons. 200 hp engines gave a speed of 11 knots. In 1984 Kieler Verkehrs-AG had a new Laboe built, and the 1962 vessel was sold to Viking Reederei Personenschiffahrt of Flensburg, and renamed Freya II (1). She was sold in 1988, and replaced by a similar looking Freya II (2) (the chartered Kollund). She was bought by the Lower Thames & Medway Passenger Boat Co and used on public sailings and charters from Gravesend to Greenwich, London and as far out as Southend. She was renamed Princess Pocahontas, after the native American who died in Gravesend and who has a monument at the nearby St George's Church.
