Halcione
Ship: 842 tons
Captain: J E Crocker
Surgeon Superintendent: Dr Percy Lou
Sailed London May 25th 1875 - arrived Wellington (via New Plymouth) September 5th 1875

The Halcione, one of the first iron full-rigged ships built for the Shaw Savill Company, in 1869, completed twenty- six voyages to Auckland, Wellington, Lyttelton, Nelson, Bluff, and Napier; and after making a good run of 89 days to Wellington Heads, on her eighteenth passage out, was totally wrecked. The Halcione was never a flyer, but she made more than average runs. In 1886 she made the Bluff in 87 days, under Captain Parker. She also ran to Wellington, under Captain Bishop on three occasions in 87 days. The ship was built specially for the New Zealand trade by Steele, of Greenock; her tonnage being 843. In 1888 the vessel's rig was changed to that of a barque.
