"Swedish Lloyd’s" new steamers were built last
year by Messrs. Swan, Hunter &. Wigham
Richardson Ltd., Neptune Works, Newcastle on Tyne, and
were put into service in June the same year. They
are 4,350 tons and make 17 1/2 knots, thus being the
largest and fastest steamers in regular North Sea
service. The voyage takes about 35 hours, or two
nights and one day.

The steamers have accomodation for 200 1st class
and 40 3rd class passengers. 1st class accomodation
is in one and two berth cabins. In 3rd class
passengers are accomodated in two or four berth cabins.
The steamers are luxuriosly fitted in every respect.
The whole deck being reserved for lounge, smoke
room, veranda-cafe and a spacious windscreen.

No efforts have been spared to make the steamers
comfortable and since they recently have been fitted
with longer and wider bilge keels they can safely be
recommended to even the poorest sailors.”
