The SS 'Nomadic' LinkExternal link is a steamship of the White Star Line, launched on 25 April 1911 in Belfast. She was built as a tender to the liners RMS 'Olympic' and RMS 'Titanic', and is the last remaining vessel built for the White Star Line still afloat. Returned to Belfast in 2006 the 'Nomadic' is now housed in the Hamilton Graving Dock and is being restored as a visitor attraction.
