  • The Great Western Steam Ship Company operated the first regular transatlantic steamer service from 1838 until 1846. Related to the Great Western Railway, the company's directors expected their new enterprise to achieve the position that was ultimately secured by the Cunard Line. The firm's first ship, the Great Western was capable of record Blue Riband crossings as late as 1843 and was the model for Cunard's Britannia and her three sisters. The company's second steamer, the Great Britain was an outstanding technical achievement of the age. The company collapsed because it failed to secure a mail contract and the Great Britain appeared to be a total loss after running aground. The company may have had a more successful outcome had it built sister ships for the Great Western instead of investing in the too advanced Great Britain.
  • La Great Western Steamship Company è stata una compagnia navale britannica che operò il primo servizio transatlantico di linea con navi a vaporedal 1838 al 1846. La compagnia nacque come estensione della Great Western Railway per gestire il primo servizio di posta transatlantico sempre su navi a vapore. Nel 1839 tuttavia tale servizio venne affidato alla Cunard Line.La prima nave della compagnia fu la SS Great Western che vinse più volte il Nastro Azzurro stabilendo vari record per il miglior tempo di attraversata dell'oceano fino al 1843. La Geat Western fece inoltre da modello per la RMS Britannia della Cunard e per le sue tre imbarcazionisorelle.La seconda nave della compagnia, sempre a vapore, fu la SS Great Britain che fu considerata all'epoca un nuovo punto di riferimento per quel tipodi imbarcazioni.Sfortunatamente la compagnia collassò a causa del fallimento nell'ottenimento della gestione del servizio di posta transatlantico, inoltre la Great Britain affondando si dimostrò per la compagnia una perdita totale.
