SS United States - Luxury passenger liner built in 1952 for United States Lines designed to capture the Trans-Atlantic speed record.  The ship is the largest ocean liner constructed entirely in the US and the fastest to cross the Atlantic in either direction.  Her construction was partially subsidized by the US government, since she was designed to allow conversion to a troop carrier should the need arise. She operated uninterrupted in transatlantic passenger service until 1969.
