  • At 98-metres in length and with a 3,400-ton displacement, the SS Great Britain was by far the largest ship in the world when she was launched in 1843 and dwarfed other iron ships then in service. As the world’s first luxury ocean liner, the SS Great Britain could carry up to 360 passengers and 130 crew to New York on each voyage. The SS Great Britain was refitted as an emigrant steam clipper in 1852, and an extra deck added in 1857. On voyages to Australia, she carried up to 700 passengers in a mixture of first, second and steerage classes.
