Ships of the Union Castle Line

Throughout the history there has been lots of ships in use by the Union Castle Line. A total of 107 ships were part of the fleet. We won’t be listing the names of all of them, but instead just writing a few lines on what kind of ships they were and what kind of cargo they were transporting.

From the two shipping companies that merged into Union Castle Line, Union Line had 29 ships, while the Castle Shipping Company had a much bigger fleet with 78 ships. Note that these ships are for the entirety of the Union Castle Line existence as a single entity.

Ships in the Union Castle Line fleet can be divided into two groups, passenger and cargo ships. Shocking I know. Cargo ships were carrying various types of cargo, and the passenger ships in service by the Union Castle also posed as hospital ships during the great wars.

Different ships from the Union Castle fleet met their demise using differently. Some of the ships were sold off, some scraped and some were sank by torpedoes and sea mines. Some of the ships that were sold are still in active service in countries like Greece and Hong Kong.
