Sailed London 10th February 1874 - arrived Hawkes Bay 26th May 1874

The Schichallion, a smart little iron barque of 600 tons, was built in 1869 for the Shaw Savill Company. She had a rather short, career as she was wrecked in the English Channel on a voyage from Auckland in 1879. She visited all the principle ports of New Zealand, and on one occasion ran out to Wellington in 84 days port to port. Schichallion made two trips to Auckland, three to Wellington and one each to Lyttelton, Dunedin and Napier. On all of these voyages she was under the command of Captain Levack.
