The ‘Majestic Monarch’s Of Sail;’ The Amercian, Thomas W. Lawson & Her German Sister, The Preußen!

 

Thomas W. Lawson

 

The Thomas W. Lawson was a seven-masted, steel-hulled schooner originally planned for the Pacific trade, but then used primarily to haul coal and oil along the East Coast of the United States. Built in 1902, the ship holds the distinction of being the largest schooner and the largest pure sailing vessel, without an auxiliary engine ever built. Larger sailing vessels with auxiliary engines for propulsion were the French France II  (1911) and German R. C. Rickmers  (1906), both five-masted barques.

The Thomas W. Lawson was destroyed off the uninhabited island of Annet, in the Scilly Isles, in a storm on December 14,

Overview

Greek-interest controlled shipping has continued its growth, with the number of Greek controlled vessels rising to 4,092 (vessels exceeding 1,000 Gross Tonnage).  Shipping counts second only to tourism in Greece in terms of economic contribution, contributing an estimated 7% to the country’s GDP and employing over 190,000 people.  Unlike other industries in Greece, shipping’s business cycle traditionally follows global trends driven by the world’s transportation needs, and it remains largely immune from the economic and political instabilities in Greece.  Although low crude oil prices have been boosting refinery utilization, the recent rock-bottom level of dry bulk suggests a very slow and painful recovery
