Vessels Owned by the MacFarlane Family

compiled by John M. MacFarlane 2012

One writer has called this the "Shamrock Fleet". The funnels of the MacFarlane brothers’s vessels were painted black and decorated with a white band on which was appended a green shamrock. The funnel of the Daring was left entirely black. The MacFarlane brothers were Captain Fred MacFarlane, Arthur MacFarlane (Chief Engineer), and Captain George A. MacFarlane.
