The Fleets

Stettiner Lloyd, Stettin 1880-1886

The Stettiner Lloyd had been founded in 1880 to provide a service from Stettin to New York via Scandinavian ports. The company owned only two vessels, the KÄTIE, 2,737 tons, built by Alexander Stephen & Sons, Glasgow, in 1880, and the MARTHA built in 1884 by G. Howaldt, Kiel.
Stettiner Lloyd's service was not a success, and in 1886 was abruptly withdrawn, without warning, the MARTHA undertaking the last sailing, leaving Stettin on 17 April 1886, and Gothenburg on 4 May 1886. The company went into liquidation and the KÄTIE and MARTHA were re-sold to their builders who were most probably still owed a great portion of their purchase prices.
The Hamburg Amerika Linie (HAPAG) took the opportunity to extend their New York service from Stettin and started a new service on 1 July 1886 and was in operation for many years and from 1892 onwards known as the Scandia Line.
