The United States still holds the title of the Blue Ribbon as the fastest passenger ship on the transatlantic route. She was used as a liner ship of the shipping company “United States Lines” for the liner service from New York to Europe. The turbine ship was built between 1950 and 1952 in Newport News. Its steam turbines were designed for aircraft carriers, so it had the most powerful propulsion system of any merchant ship ever built. Its top speed was 71 km/h. After a long lay-up period and multiple sales, the United States was supposed to be scrapped, but a group of enthusiasts acquired the ship in 2011 for 3 million US dollars with donations. A combination as a hotel, museum and culture ship is planned.
