Macarena - Collection C. Kleiss
At Marseille. She was the first vessel. The next one was the Castilla, but British.
      She was built in 1894 by Grangemouth Dockyard for this shipping company. She was sold in 1916 to Wenceslao González Garra, retaining her name. In 1920 she was bought by Naviera Fierros, being renamed her Genoveva Fierro. She had a very peculiar ending, not because of the fact itself but because of the circumstances. She sank close to Santoña on 16/December/1925 by collision with the Antonio, but the peculiar thing was that the reason for the collision of the two ships, which were sailing in opposite direction, was because the Captains of both ships wanted to greet each other since they were brothers. The Antonio was beached on Noja beach for avoiding sinking, but it was impossible to refloat her again.
