The Dreadnought was known as "The Wild Boat of the Atlantic". Launched in 1853, she was a clipper of the Red Cross Line which set many transatlantic speed records. She sailed in the Atlantic and China trade before going down rounding Cape Horn in 1869.

In this image, the brush of artist Efren Erese captures this fine ship in her glory.
