    clipper bows and were barque rigged They travelled out via the Cape of Good Hope and back via Cape Horn as the sailing clippers had done but more than halved the passage times Whereas the sailing ships frequently sighted no land between the UK and New Zealand the steamers stopped at Plymouth Teneriffe Capetown and Hobart on the outward journey and at Montevideo Rio de Janeiro and Teneriffe on the return These routes were maintained until 1914 when the Panama Canal opened The early 1890s were a time of depressed trade and the NZSC found itself embarrassed by many difficulties and troubles In 1890 Mr later Sir Edwyn Dawes took over a a considerable number of shares in the NZSC from Sir William Pearce and it was Edwyn Dawes who steered the company to successful solutions to its problems He also transferred the financial control of the company from New Zealand to London His reorganisation of the company involved the replacement of the existing fleet with larger more economic ships the first of which was the Ruahine 1 of 1891 which was over 6000 gross tons She had a four cylinder engine which was far more fuel efficient than the previous ships Ruahine 1 was a great success and was followed by six even larger ships over the next ten years In 1912 the NZSC took over the Federal SN Co but the two concerns retained their own identities In 1916 both companies became part of P O but again they continued to operate separately although the exchange of ships between constituent P O companies became common At the end of the First World War the NZSC had only four passenger ships remaining To maintain the regular monthly service a fifth ship was needed so the Shropshire of the Federal SN Co was rebuilt with extra passenger facilities as the Rotorua 2 In 1929 the three magnificent 16000 ton motor ships Rangitane 1 Rangitata and Rangitiki 2 were delivered They were followed by three equally fine motor cargo ships of 11000 tons in 1931 thoroughly modernising the NZSC fleet The P O liner Mongolia was chartered in 1938 as the Rimutaka 3 Rangitane 1 did not survive the Second World War but her sisters ran until 1962 alongside the three fine new liners Rangitoto Rangitane 2 and Ruahine 3 which were delivered between 1949 and 1951 They were joined briefly by the ex Cunard liner Remuera 3 in 1962 following the withdrawal of the 1929 sisters bit all passenger services ceased in 1969 Towards the ends of their lives the NZSC passenger and cargo ships adopted Federal funnel colours In 1973 all remaining NZSC and Federal ships were amalgamated into the main P O fleet Ships on This Page Rangitane 1 1929 4 Rangitata 1929 62 Rangitiki 2 1929 62 Rimutaka 3 1938 50 Rotorua 2 1923 40 Turakina 3 1923 40 NZSC Pages NZSC Header Page NZSC Page 1 1873 1899 NZSC Page 2 1900 1914 NZSC Page 3
