THE OCEAN LINERS
Welcome to our S/S United States website celebrating this world famous transatlantic ocean liner. When she was first introduced in 1952 she was the ultimate flagship of the American merchant fleet. During her somewhat brief career she has become renowned for her great speed and is the last holder of the coveted “Blue Riband”. Today the United States lingers on laid up in Philadelphia facing an uncertain future.

She is truly one of the most iconic ocean liners ever built and is a maritime icon and a masterpiece of naval engineering and American ingenuity. She is a true American icon and transatlantic legend and today it seems unlikely that she will ever relinquish the title of “The Fastest Ocean Liner in the World”.
