Ship: 1021 tons
Captain: Worster
Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed Plymouth May 5th 1877 - arrived Lyttelton August 8th 1877

The Waikato, a well-found ship of 1021 tons, flying the New Zealand Shipping Co.'s flag, was a real clipper and completed many fast voyages out and home. Of twelve passages outwards only three exceeded 100 days. Captain Worster made a fine run to lyttelton in 1877. The Waikato made the passage from Plymouth in 82 days, and 78 land to land. When steamers took the place of many sailing vessels the Waikato was sold to the Germans and renamed Pfluger. Subsequently she fell into the hands of J D Spreckles and Son, of San Francisco, in a partly dismasted condition. This was in 1900, when she was rigged as a barquentine, and given the name Coronado. She was sold to the Canadian Pacific Coal Co., and used by them as a towing barge. She foundered on November 20, 1918, when being towed from Ladysmith to Vancouver.
