S.S. America 1950
S.S. America was an ocean liner built in 1940 for the United States Lines and was designed by the noted American naval architect William Francis Gibbs. She carried many names in the 54 years between her construction and her 1994 wrecking, as she served as the SS America (carrying this name three different times during her career), the USS West Point, the SS Australis, the SS Italis, the SS Noga, the SS Alferdoss, and the SS American Star. She served most notably in passenger service as the SS America, and as the Greek-flagged SS Australis. She was finally wrecked as the SS American Star at Playa de Garcey on Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands on 18 January 1994. The wreck is still there to this day, but has now mostly collapsed and broken up into the sea and only a small section of the bow remains visible at low tide. (Wikipedia)
