Ship: 500 tons
Captain: H Wood
Sailed Downs May 10th 1868 - arrived Wellington September 18th 1868
A vessel I have had a good many
inquiries about was the ship Excelsior, 683 tons, which made five passages to Auckland.
Originally a fast China tea clipper, she was chartered in 1859 by Shaw Savill and Company
for the New Zealand trade. Excelsior made five voyages to Auckland and two to Wellington.
