The Fleets

Lavarello Line / G.B. Lavarello

Commenced passenger and cargo services in 1864 between Genoa, Montevideo and Buenos Aires with the wooden hulled steamship, BUENOS AIRES. From 1867, the company commissioned further ships and extended services to Valparaiso and Callao via Cape Horn. By 1881 the company was in financial difficulties and in 1883 went into liquidation and their remaining assets sold.
