Built between 1950 and 1951, the now retired SS United States is the largest ocean liner constructed entirely in the United States, and the fastest ocean liner to cross the Atlantic in either direction. The ship retains the Blue Riband for the highest average speed since her maiden voyage in 1952, and still holds the title today.

A portion of all proceeds will benefit the SS United States Conservancy and their mission to "ensure that America's Flagship inspires and endures for generations to come". Please see our other SS United States items.
