The Atlantic (later the Queen Frederica)(1949-1954)
Built in 1927 as Malolo for Matson Lines. In 1937 she was renamed Matsonia.
Home Lines bought her in 1948 and renamed her Atlantic.

In 1954 she was transferred to National Hellenic American Line (a Home Lines subsidiary) and named Queen Frederica.

She retained this name when the National Hellenic American Line was bought by Chandris Lines in 1965, who continued to use both company names

She was laid up in the River Fal in the early 1970s, but had a charter to Sun Cruises in 1973. She was then laid up in Greece until burnt out and then scrapped in 1978.
