List of Clipper-bow Merchant Vessels

Hello all,

One of my personal hobbies is collecting maritime postcards, and I've found one of my favorite subjects to be the large merchant vessels built with a clipper-bow during the steam era. Though an anachronism at the time, the design really led an elegance to the vessels.

Anyways, I'm trying to figure out what all vessels were built along those lines so that it is easier to search for any that I haven't encountered yet. In general, I'm most interested in unrigged merchant or government vessels over 1,000 tons that saw commercial service after 1900.

So far I have postcards of the following in my collection:

-America Maru, 5,870 tons, built 1898 and torpedoed in 1944
-Arawa (as Port Henderson), later Colon, Lake Magentic, Port Henderson, Anapo, Port Said, 5,060 tons, built 1884 and torpedoed in 1915
-Atrato, later The Viking, Viknor, 5,366 tons, built 1888 and mined in 1915
-City of Berlin (as Meade), later Berlin, Meade, 5641 tons, built 1875 and scrapped in 1921
-City of New York (as New York), later New York, Harvard, Plattsburg, 10,674 tons, built 1888 and scrapped in 1923
-City of Paris (as Philadelphia), later Paris, Yale, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, 10,669 tons, built 1889 and scrapped in 1923
-Earl Grey, later Kanada, Canada, III Internatsonal, Fedor Litke, 2,357 tons, built 1909 and scrapped in 1959
-Empire (as Volubilis), later Volubilis, 4,496 tons, built 1902 and scrapped in 1931
-Empress of India, later Loyalty, 5,905 tons, built 1891 and scrapped in 1923
-Empress of Japan, 5,905 tons, built 1891 and scrapped in 1926
-Havraise, 4,646 tons, built 1903 and scrapped in 1932
-Hongkong Maru, 6,159 tons, built 1898 and scrapped in 1935
-Indian Prince (as Burndyke), later Burndyke, Caterham, 1,912 tons, built 1886 and scuttled in 1916
-Magdalena, 5,362 tons, built 1889 and scrapped in 1923
-Marathon, later Oruba, 6,765 tons, built 1904 and scrapped in 1924
-Meteor, later Rostock, Meteor II, 3,613 tons, built 1904 and bombed in 1945
-Miltiades, later Orcana, 6,796 tons, built 1903 and scrapped in 1923
-Moravian, later Akbar, 4,573 tons, built 1899 and scrapped in 1923
-Nippon Maru (as Renaico), later Renaico, 6,162 tons, built 1898 and scrapped in 1926
-Rei de Portugal (as Manouba), later Napolitan Prince, Manouba, 3,198 tons, built 1889 and scrapped in 1929
-Salamis, later Kamarima, 4,508 tons, built 1889 and scrapped in 1924
-Scot (as Oceana), later Oceana, Alfonso XIII, Vasco Nunez de Balboa, 6,844 tons, built 1891 and scrapped in 1927
-Thames, 5.645 tons, built 1890 and scuttled in 1914

In addition I'm aware of the following clipper-bow vessels roughly meeting my criteria, that I've yet to obtain postcards of:

-America, later Trinacria, 5.528 tons, built 1884 and scrapped in 1925
-Batavia, later Tacoma, Shikotan Maru, 2,549 tons, built 1870 and scrapped in 1924
-Benlomond, 4,887 tons, built 1911 and scrapped in 1932
-Benmohr, 4,806 tons, built 1912 and sunken in 1914
-Benrinnes, later Thorpeness, 4,791 tons, built 1914 and bombed in 1938
-City of Rome, 8.453 tons, built 1881 and scrapped in 1903
-Clyde, 5,645 tons, built in 1890 and scrapped in 1913
-Delta, later Takasago Maru, Centennial, 1,619 tons, built in 1859 and wrecked in 1906
-Djibouti, 2,357 tons, built 1901 and torpedoed in 1918
-Garonne, 3,876 tons, built 1871 and scrapped in 1905
-Imperator Nikolai II, later Veche, Il'ich, 4,071 tons, built 1895 and capsized in 1944
-Prinzessin Victoria Louise, 4,419 tons, built 1900 and wrecked in 1906
-Savoia, 4,377 tons, built 1897 and scrapped in 1923
-St. Sunniva, 1,368 tons, built 1931 and sunken in 1943
-Stella Polaris, 5,020 tons, built 1927 and sunken in 2006
-Tainui, later Covadonga, Astoria, 5,049 tons, built 1885 and scrapped in 1910

Any help with adding to my list would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Kyle

City of Rome Postcard

Hi again Fairlane 500,

I see now that you specify postcards. Here is one which may fill the bill:

In passing, my interest in the City of Rome stems from the fact a relative of mine, Alex Summers, sailed from Greenock to New York as a passenger in 1892.

Regards,

Keith

Here's the Stella Polaris. I remember it well, running into Parkeston Quay (Harwich) as a kid. My Dad used to tell me it was a cruise ship for bosses to take their secretaries on

I would count cable ships, ad they were generally operated in a commercial capacity, however I have been trying to exclude royal yachts a they are just essentially very large private yachts.

Royal Mail Clipper-bow Liners

To start off, here are the postcards in my collection of some of Royal Mail Steam Packet Co's clipper-bow liners.

Atrato, built in 1888 by Robert Napier & Sons, Yard No. 410, sold in 1913 to Viking Cruises and renamed The Viking, then requisitioned by the Royal Navy and converted into the merchant cruiser HMS Viknor. She was lost with all hands off the coast of Ireland on 13 January, 1915, presumably after hitting a mine.

Clyde, built in 1890 by Robert Napier & Sons, Yard No. 419, sailed until sold for scrapping in June of 1913.

Magdalena, built in 1889 by Robert Napier & Sons, Yard No. 417, sailed until sold for scrapping in 1923.

Thames, built in 1890 by Robert Napier & Sons, Yard No. 418, sailed until December, 1914 when scuttled as a blockship at Scapa Flow.

La Veloce Italiana Clipper-bow Liner

Next up, an postcard from the fleet of La Veloce Italiana.

Savoia was built in 1897 by Odero at Foce, Italy, Yard No. 186. She was lengthened by 20 meters in 1900 and sailed until being scrapped at Genoa in 1923.

Thanks for the info, definitely the first tanker to make the list. Even though she started life as a pure sailing vessel, I'll count her as it looks like as a tanker, engines were her main mode of propulsion. In fact, it looks like even though they kept the masts, there don't seem to be any sails onboard.

You will need the CNCos sisters, possibly the most elegant ships of the era, refer to Wikiswire

One of a quartet of ships built for C.N.Co. by Scotts’, for the China-Australia trade, Changsha and her sister ships, Taiyuan I, Tsinan I and Chingtu, were well known for their trim, yacht-like build, and their comfortable passenger accommodation.

There are a few Dutch governmental vessels (serving for the department of the Colonies in Dutch East Indies) which may well meet with your interests. It concerns the "Sumbawa" (1892) and the "Kwartel" (1901) and sistership "Fazant".
