Hermione
Ship: 1120 tons
Captain: D T Roberts

Surgeon Superintendent: Dr Edward Jennings
Sailed London May 5th 1882 - arrived Auckland August 15th 1882

A Shaw Saville and Albion ship that was expected to do better than was ever got out of her was the Hermione, a full-rigger who was well-known in Auckland and other ports in the eighties and nineties - but especially in Auckland, to which she made eight voyages. She was a handsome craft of 1120 tons and was turned out by the Hall shipyards at Aberdeen during the same year that the company's other classically-named ship, the Pleione, was launched. Like so many of the old colonial ships the Hermione was "sold foreign" when steam came in. She was bought by an Italian firm and renamed the Mantova. She was broken up at Genoa as late as the year immediately before the outbreak of the Great War.
