Vessels that visited New Zealand waters

The primary purpose of this project is to record and note vessels that have visited New Zealand. If any passengers are mentioned then I will note these or link to them if possible.

  • A fleet of Māori canoes are said to have arrived from Hawaiiki circa 1350 A.D.
  • Sixty immigrant ships were reported to have sailed from the United Kingdom, for New Zealand, between 1st February 1873 and 25th February 1874. The three quickest passages were made by the James Nicol Fleming (in 73 days), by the Scimitar (in 70 days), and by the s.s. Mongol (in 51 days).
