The N.Z. Shipping Co's ship Orari completed 18 voyages to New Zealand. She visited all the principal ports, making her first appearance at Lyttelton in 1876 a new ship. The passengers made by the Orari were consistent and only on two occasions did she exceed 100 days, her best performance being the passage out to Lyttelton, under Captain Fox, which occupied 84 days land to land. When the Orari was loading cargo for Dunedin in the South-west India Docks, on the morning of June 6, 1887, a fire broke out, and the storeroom and aft cabin on deck, with the contents, were seriously damaged by fire and water. The cargo did not suffer. In 1880 the Orari had a good race with the Trevelyan from London to Lyttelton. The Orari sailed from Gravesend on February 7, and from the 12th to the 21st encountered very severe gales, being hove-to on several occasions. The two ships were in company in the Channel on February 9, and did not meet again until their arrival at Lyttelton. The Trevelyan arrived on the 13th and the Orari on the 14th May. On this occasion the Orari had been absent from Lyttelton only seven months and ten days, the passage Home having been accomplished in 79 days. Captain Mosey was in command. The Orari was later sold to a Liverpool firm and rigged as a barque. In 1906 she passed into the hands of the Italians for 2350, and in 1909 was converted into a hulk.
