Chandris: Ultimate Australis Brochure **Restocked**

 

The crafty and thrifty Greeks always made good use of secondhand tonnage … and they loved using American ships for their quality construction. The Greeks snapped up the SS America when USL decided to sell her in the mid 1960’s and made a fortune with the immigrant trade to Australia. She had several name and ownership changes and wrecked off the Canary Islands on her way to becoming a hotel in the far east. A sad ending to a spectacular and charming ship. An excellent copy in like new condition and full of spectacular photography that shows off her American Heritage well.
