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.
