Passenger Tugs and Tenders is a fully illustrated history of the large tugs and tenders once used to carry passengers to and from liners.  The passenger steam tug was once a common sight at harbours and piers at the ports and resorts of Britain; the last being the purpose-built Yorkshireman. The passenger tender was more specifically designed to service the needs of passenger liners standing offshore; perhaps the most famous tender was the French-registered, but British-owned Nomadic.  Their story is unravelled with glimpses of the royals and the famous that once trod the decks of the tenders.  Happily, there are five passenger tugs and tenders currently the subject of preservation.
