The Irrawaddy Flotilla Company, founded in 1865 in Burma (Myanmar), grew to become the 'greatest river fleet on earth' with over 600 vessels carrying some 9 million passengers a year along the Irrawaddy River of Burma at its peak in the 1920's.
Nowadays the 'forgotten fleet' is unknown and this website tells just some of the incredible stories of this Company, its people and the legacy that lives on today and continues to inspire adventurers and writers.
