'Gondola' is a purpose-built steam yacht, carrying passengers on pleasure trips around Coniston Water as it has done since Victorian times. The yacht was first deployed on Coniston Water in 1859 and carried passengers on daily trips until 1939. The boat was badly damaged in a storm in the 1960s, so badly, in fact, that it was determined that she was too badly damaged to be restored. A new Gondola was built on the same lines as the original and launched in 1980. Pier Cottage, Coniston Pier Coniston,
