Carmania

Ship Name: Carmania
Years in service: 1905-
Funnels: 2
Masts: 2
Shipping line: Cunard
Ship description: Built by John Brown & Co., Clydebank, Glasgow, Scotland. Tonnage: 19,566. Dimensions: 650' x 72' (678' o.l.). Triple-screw, 18 1/2 knots. Steam turbines. Two masts and two funnels.
History: Navigating bridge 60 feet above water line and 90 feet from keel. First Cunarder to be fitted with steam turbines. A faster ship than her sister, which had reciprocating engines. Attained 20.4 knots during her trials. Passengers: 300 first, 350 second, 1,100 third. Converted to armed merchant cruiser in 1914. Engaged the armed German liner Cap Trafalgar off Trinidad Island, September 14, 1914, and after many shots had been fired the Hamburg-American liner was sunk. The Carmania had received 79 shell holes, but the damage was not severe enough to prevent her making port for repairs. In December 1918 she was placed back in trans-Atlantic service. Sold to British shipbreakers in November 1932. Sister ship: Caronia.
