About This File

FS2004/FSX Steamship Great Britain. Designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the Great Western Steamship Company on the transatlantic service between Bristol and New York from 1845 to 1854 she was with ninety-eight meters the longest and most modern passenger ship of that time. She was build of iron, powered by two 500 hp engines and propelled by a screw. 360 passengers enjoyed the luxury and 120 men of crew did the job. In the decades later she ran aground, carried thousands of immigrants to Australia from 1852 until converted to a square rigged sailing vessel in 1881. Three years later, she was retired to the Falkland Islands where she was used as a warehouse, quarantine ship and coal hulk (Wikipedia). Since 1970 she was returned to the Bristol dry dock where she was built. Now she is a museum ship in Bristol Harbour. The pilotable FS-boat has twenty-three cameras which allows you to explore the boat on deck and from high in the masts. FSDS 3.5 model by Erwin Welker.
