North American ships with New Zealand connections

(Revised 31 March 2004)

 

 

This section lists merchant ships built in North America and registered in New Zealand up to 1950 and others built and/or owned in North America that ended their days in New Zealand up to 1975, a total of 212 vessels.  Watt’s Index of NZ ships and Ingram and Wheatley’s record of NZ shipwrecks (see references at end of list) provided the starting point for the list but the information has been substantially revised and corrected using multiple sources not available to them.

 

Altogether, 81 ships built in the United States and 85 built in British North America were registered in New Zealand of which most, but not all ended their days in NZ. At least a further 35 American and 14 Canadian ships ended their days in New Zealand. The wreck of the Vancouver-built Endeavour II replica in 1971 has been disregarded. British North America consists of Canada, Newfoundland (not part of Canada for most of the period covered) and Bermuda.

 

The information provided represents a compromise in level of detail. Generally more information is available from the sources indicated. Where possible, US official numbers are also shown though quite a few of the ships were sold or lost before the USA adopted ship numbering. Tonnages and even dimensions recorded later in life may well differ significantly from those recorded earlier because of changes in measurement practice through time and between jurisdictions. Uncertain identifications and dates are indicated by ? Further information from original primary sources will be welcomed. In many cases only single tonnage figures are available. Earlier British tonnages have been treated as net and American tonnages as gross following the respective British and American practices, in the absence of information to the contrary. Original names are indicated where known but possibly not all were identified. A few vessels were known by more than two names (listed at foot of list). The Indiana was issued two British official numbers (refer footnotes). Ships posted missing on voyages from NZ ports are included.

 

ONUM   indicates official number.  Generally, I have not been able to identify these for US ships built after 1910.

 

NZREG  indicates the first year that the vessel was registered in NZ. Some were registered in NZ more than once.

                “never” indicates those built in North America but not registered in NZ that were wrecked or otherwise lost in NZ.

 

A             identifies those that were also registered in Australia.

 

BUILT Region      generally US state or Canadian province.
