Berlin, Great Eastern Railway Co.

picture of Berlin

The BERLIN, 1745 tons, was built by Earle's Shipbuilding, Hull, in 1894 for the Harwich - Hook of Holland Service.

On 21st Feb. 1907 she was swept across the northern mole at the entrance to the New Waterway in a fierce gale. Her bows broke off and sank, but her stern portion remained fast to the breakwater. Despite rescue attempts, only 10 passengers and 5 crew were saved and the loss of 128 lives made this the worst peacetime disaster in North Sea passenger travel.
