Sailed London July 27th 1879 - arrived Auckland November 21th 1879

The Anazi, a small composite barque of 468 tons, formerly owned by Mr J Fleming, of London, was purchased by Shaw Savill Co. She made her first appearance at Auckland on March 1st 1874. She was a slow sailer, her fastest passage being made in 111 days to Port Chalmers, and her longest run 126 days to Auckland. When entering the Hauraki Gulf in 1874 the barque went ashore early on the morning of March 1 at a bay about three miles beyond Takapun, Auckland. Full details of the disaster were published at the time......Nothing of an eventful nature occurred on any of the other passage. Captain Hill, who made six voyages in the Anazi, subsequently commanded the Himalaya, visiting alternately Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin.
