Ferris Cargo Steamer (1917) Full Interior 3D Model
Another VSF addition from May 2010, she has some furnishings but no triple expansion steam engine. I Decided to make her hull out of steel for no apparent reason.
Of the 703 Ferris and other wooden ships ordered, 214 were cancelled when the armistice was signed in November 1918, 323 were completed, 44 sold, 23 lost, and 256 sold for scrapping. These wooden steamships earned a bad reputation due to high maintenance costs and rudder problems, although 265 carried cargoes overseas. In the end, the collapse of the freight rates after the war signed their death warrant. However, had the war lasted even one more year, the wooden steamship fleet would have given ample reason to its existence. These cargo ships were the last and the largest vessels ever built following a tradition of wood shipbuilding that had lasted practically unchanged for centuries.
