Eastern Steam Navigation Co. / Great Ship Company
The company was formed with a single ship which was launched in 1858. After a succession of delays and mishaps, her maiden voyage to New York was made in June 1860 and the passage was made in 11.5days. The ship incurred substantial financial losses and was sold to Daniel Gooch in 1864, the Great Ship Company having gone into liquidation the previous year.
