The old Maori, as she was familiarly called, made several successful voyages to New Zealand in the early days. She was one of Willis, Gann and Co's., ships, and made several voyages under the company's flag to Auckland, Lyttelton, Nelson, Wellington and Dunedin, and in the sixties was chartered by the Shaw Savill Co., to bring out immigrants. She made her first passage to Nelson, arriving at that port on 25th December, 1851, bringing over 50 passengers. After discharging she proceeded on to Wellington. The Maori was a ship of 800 tons, but for her size was a very slow sailer, her average passages occupying about 120 days.
