The World Is Coming To Fowey
Tuesday 20th July 2010
The residential cruise ship, "The World" will be coming to Fowey on 29th July staying until the 31st July. At the moment she is expected to arrive at 5pm but this may change.
The World has a gross tonnage of 43,524 tons, is 196m (644ft) long and 30m (98ft) wide. Her draft is 6.7m (22ft). She has 165 residential units made up of 106 apartments, 19 studio apartments and 40 studios.
The World last came to Fowey in October, 2007 and you can see from the pictures, she is a very impressive sight.
Fortunately, the tides will be right for visiting Fowey by boat from Lerryn and thus giving intrepid sailors the opportunity to sail around The World!
