The Waitara, a ship of 833 tons, built by Reed, of Glasgow, in 1863, and flying the New Zealand Shipping Co.'s flag, did not enjoy a long career in the New Zealand trade, as she was sunk in the English Channel by the Hurunui in 1883. Details of this disaster were supplied in the article on the Hurunui. Twenty of the passengers and crew were drowned, including a few old colonists who were returning to Wellington.
