Showing 2 of 3

The 9,748-ton Mississippi/Samland/Belgic was 490.4 feet long with a beam of 58.2 feet. She featured three decks, four masts and a single funnel. A pair of triple expansion engines powered her at a service speed of 14 knots. She specialized in carrying cattle from US ranches to European markets. On westbound voyages, she likely carried emigrants to the US, although details about this fact are sketchy.
