Sailed London February 8th 1873 - arrived Wellington May 20th 1873

The Wild Duck was charted in "the sixties" by Shaw Savill & Co and ran almost exclusively to Wellington, with one trip to Auckland and one to Nelson. Immediately following the voyage to Nelson, she proceeded to Timaru where she was nearly capsized during a heavy gale. This voyage out in 1873 was her last to the colony.
