In 1861 the last paddle-driven ship of the Cunard Steamship Company was launched.

In the following year Scotia broke the record for the fastest crossing of the Atlantic to win the Blue Riband, and held it for five years.


In that same year, 1862, Cunard launched its first screw propelled liner ‘The China’.
