SS George Washington was an ocean liner built in 1908 for the Bremen-based North German Lloyd and was named after George Washington, the first President of the United States. The ship was also known as USS George Washington (ID-3018) and USAT George Washington in service of the United States Navy and United States Army, respectively, during World War I. In the interwar period, she reverted to her original name of SS George Washington. During World War II, the ship was known as both USAT George Washington and, briefly, as USS Catlin (AP-19), in a short, second stint in the U.S. Navy.

  • Die George Washington war ein Passagierschiff des Norddeutschen Lloyd. Die George Washington war mit 25.570 BRT eines der größten deutschen Passagierschiffe vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg. Das Dampfschiff wurde den Vulcan-Werken am Tag des 50-jährigen Jubiläums des Norddeutschen Lloyd am 20. Februar 1907 in Auftrag gegeben und lief am 1. November 1908 in der Stettiner Vulcan-Werft vom Stapel. Die Jungfernfahrt begann am 12. Juni 1909 in Bremerhaven und endete am 25. Juli 1909 im Hafen von New York. Die 213 m lange und 23,83 m breite George Washington konnte 2.679 Passagiere (darunter 568 Passagiere in der 1. Klasse, 433 Passagiere in der 2. Klasse, 452 Passagiere in der 3. Klasse und 1.226 Passagiere 4. Klasse auf dem Zwischendeck) an Bord nehmen und fuhr bis in den Ersten Weltkrieg hinein die Strecke Bremerhaven–New York. Am 3. August 1914 wurde der Dampfer im Hafen von New York interniert. Während des Krieges diente das Schiff als amerikanischer Truppentransporter. Das Schiff fuhr nach dem Krieg für die United States Lines. Im Jahr 1951 wurde die George Washington abgewrackt. Innerhalb des Lloyd gehörte die George Washington zur „Bremen-Klasse“ und wurde als „Doppelschrauben-Salonpostdampfer“ bezeichnet. Im Gegensatz dazu standen die „Doppelschrauben-Schnelldampfer“ (z. B. Kaiser Wilhelm der Große), mit denen der Lloyd das Zeitalter der Vierschornsteindampfer eingeläutet hatte. Der Unterschied zwischen diesen beiden Klassen, welche allesamt die Route Bremerhaven-New York bedienten, lag hauptsächlich in der Reisegeschwindigkeit und in der Ladekapazität. Luxus und Service hingegen waren sehr ähnlich. Außerdem besaß der Lloyd noch die Dampfer der Feldherren-Klasse, welche neben den Transatlantikfahrten auch Ostasien und Australien ansteuerten. Die Salondampfer benötigten zwei bis drei Tage länger über den Atlantik als die Schnelldampfer, wollten dafür aber ein höheres Maß an Bequemlichkeit und Ruhe bieten. Zudem hatte man Wert auf eine vergrößerte Ladekapazität gelegt. Wie die Schnelldampfer, fanden auch die Salonpostdampfer ihr Publikum und besaßen die Gunst des internationalen Publikums. (de)

  • SS George Washington was an ocean liner built in 1908 for the Bremen-based North German Lloyd and was named after George Washington, the first President of the United States. The ship was also known as USS George Washington (ID-3018) and USAT George Washington in service of the United States Navy and United States Army, respectively, during World War I. In the interwar period, she reverted to her original name of SS George Washington. During World War II, the ship was known as both USAT George Washington and, briefly, as USS Catlin (AP-19), in a short, second stint in the U.S. Navy. When George Washington was launched in 1908, she was the largest German-built steamship and the third-largest ship in the world. George Washington was built to emphasize comfort over speed and was sumptuously appointed in her first-class passenger areas. The ship could carry a total of 2,900 passengers, and made her maiden voyage in January 1909 to New York. In June 1911, George Washington was the largest ship to participate in the Coronation Fleet Review by the United Kingdom's newly crowned king, George V. On 14 April 1912, George Washington passed a particularly large iceberg south of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland and radioed a warning to all ships in the area, including White Star Line ocean liner Titanic, which sank near the same location. Throughout her German passenger career, contemporary news accounts often reported on notable persons—typically actors, singers, and politicians—who sailed on George Washington. At the outbreak of World War I, George Washington was interned by the then-neutral United States, until that country entered into the conflict in April 1917. George Washington was seized by the United States and taken over for use as a troop transport by the U.S. Navy. Commissioned as USS George Washington (ID-3018), she sailed with her first load of American troops in December 1917. In total, she carried 48,000 passengers to France, and returned 34,000 to the United States after the Armistice. George Washington also carried U.S. President Woodrow Wilson to France twice for the Paris Peace Conference. George Washington was decommissioned in 1920 and handed over the United States Shipping Board (USSB), who reconditioned her for passenger service. SS George Washington sailed in transatlantic passenger service for both the United States Mail Steamship Company (one voyage) and United States Lines for ten years, before she was laid up in the Patuxent River in Maryland in 1931. During World War II, the ship was re-commissioned by the U.S. Navy as USS Catlin (AP-19) for about six months and was operated by the British under Lend-Lease, but her old coal-fired engines were too slow for effective combat use. After conversion to oil-fired boilers, the ship was chartered to the U.S. Army as USAT George Washington and sailed around the world in 1943 in trooping duties. The ship sailed in regular service to the United Kingdom and the Mediterranean from 1944 to 1947, and was laid up in Baltimore after ending her Army service. A fire in January 1951 damaged the ship severely, and she was sold for scrapping the following month. (en)
