Nomadic is owned by a dept. of the N.Ireland Government, so it's highly unlikely that she will move anywhere else.

When she was originally rescued and the savenomadic appeal was running, most people who donated wanted her fully restored as a steamship, preferably operating, but at the very least fully restored and static similar to HMS Belfast.

The NCT however seem to want her to be an entertainment venue, with open spaces for holding conferences etc, a museum area and I seem to remember an art exhibition area all within her spaces (and look what happened to the PS Ryde when it was used for a similar purpose). If you are familiar with Nomadic's interior layout, then you will appreciate that these plans are not possible without seriously compromising an authentic restoration. The NCT have continually refused any talk of installing engines, and say that the public don't want this, but no-one seems to know any member of the public who was asked!

In five years time? She'll probably be sitting where she is now, probably in a terrible state, while more reports are made and more consultants are employed by the NCT mandarins. Sorry to sound so negative about the project but once the volunteer element was locked out by the secrecy and selfishness of the NCT, it was always going to be a one sided affair, with the NCT's own desires riding rough-shod over a proper job.
