    Port Jackson was designed by Alexander Duthie and built by Hall in Aberdeen in 1882 at a cost of £29,000. Intended for the Australian wool trade, she was registered at 2,212 tons gross and measured 286 feet in length with a 41 foot beam. On her maiden voyage under Captain Crombie she made Sydney in 77 days, the first four-masted barque ever to do the run in under 80 days, which remains a record to this day. In 1906 she was bought by Devitt & Moore and put to work as a training ship for the company's cadets. During the First World War she reverted to cargo carrying, but on the 28th April 1917 she was torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine in the Irish Sea. The captain and 13 crew were lost.
