Lot Essay

Goathland was a single-decked steel screw steamer built for Headlam & Rowland of Whitby by the Tyne Iron Ship Building Company at Newcastle in 1906. Registered upon completion at 3,044 tons gross (2,888 underdeck and 1,973 net), she measured 331 feet in length with a 48 foot beam and was fitted with triple-expansion three-cylinder 292nhp. engines by Dickinson's of Sunderland. After eleven years in service, Goathland became a wartime casualty when, on 4th July 1917, she was torpedoed and sunk in the Bay of Biscay by the German submarine U84. At the time of her sinking, she was en route from St. Nazaire to the Gulf of Mexico in ballast and twenty-one men, including her master, lost their lives.
