Ship: 600 tons
Captain: Adam Stuart
Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed London May 12th 1866 - arrived Wellington August 7th 1866

The Asterope proved herself a most consistent sailer in the eleven voyages she made to New Zealand between 1861 and 1872. For her size - only 600 tons - she sailed remarkably well and seldom encountered the gales usually experienced by many other ships. On all occasions it will be seen from her records she left London in the summer months, and always arrived at the several ports during September or October.
