The SS Nomadic, one of the last remaining links to the Titanic, has reached Belfast after a four-day trip from the French port of Le Havre.
The Nomadic as she looked in the early 20th century
The boat completed its historic home-coming after being towed on a barge up Belfast Lough on Saturday.
The Nomadic, which was built in the city, once ferried first class passengers to the doomed liner.
It will remain at Belfast docks until Monday when it will go on show near the Odyssey Centre for a few days.
It will then be removed again for restoration.
The Nomadic's return to Belfast comes almost a century after it was built by Harland and Wolff, the company which also built the Titanic.
It was commissioned by the famous White Star Line and used to take first and second class passengers out to Titanic at Cherbourg in 1912.
The Titanic entered legend when it sank with the loss of more than 1,500 people on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, but the Nomadic's story continued.
It was used as a troop carrier in both world wars and saw out the end of the century as a floating restaurant beside the Eiffel Tower in Paris before being sent for storage in Le Havre.
BBC Newsline will have a specially extended programme on Monday 17 July for live coverage of the ship's return to Belfast docks.
