Cimba was an iron-hulled ship, distinctively painted green with gold scrolls, a yellow stripe, white bulwarks and white paint aloft. Her figurehead was a rampant lion.

She sailed in the wool trade between London and Sydney for 20 years. Her first captain, J. Fimster, served until 1895, at which time Captain J. W. Holmes took over until her sale to Norwegian owners in 1906.

Cimba was stranded in the fog near Pointe Des Monts in the Gulf of St. Lawrence on 26 July 1915. She was enroute to Matane from Liverpool, and was the last sailing vessel to be lost in this area.

Here, artist Efren Erese has captured the elegance of this historic ship in better days.
