UNITED STATES LINES
With humble origins operating a pair of former German liners awarded as prizes after the First World War, United States Lines eventually grew to become one of the world’s most renowned passenger liner operators. USL went on to build some of the most glamorous Liners of the 40s, 50s and 60s including SS America and the SS United States, currently one of the world’s last remaining Ocean Liners. USL ceased Liner operations in 1969, focusing on cargo vessels, before finally going under in 1992.
When America was first introduced she was the most modern, slick Liner afloat. This remarkable ship would go on to have an extraordinary 55-year long career with a variety of owners.
