About Owners
Lloyd Triestino, Trieste

Lloyd Triestino was formed in 1919 as the successor to Lloyd Austriaco, following the incorporation of Trieste into the Kingdom of Italy.

At the end of World War I, the Lloyd Triestino fleet – which before the war was composed of 62 ships totalling 236,000 - underwent a drastic reduction.

By 1930, the company had again 45 vessels operating 14 lines on 19 sea routes from the Mediterranean to India, the Far East and Africa.

In 1936 with the reform of the merchant navy and the creation of the Finmare Institution, Lloyd Triestino began to operate with 75 ships and 17 services worldwide.

About Builders
 Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino - St. Triestino - STT - Austria Werft 1916-1918, Trieste
Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino (STT) was a private shipbuilding company based in Trieste from the mid-19th to early 20th century, and the most important naval shipbuilding firm of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

During WWI, between 1916-1918, STT was named Austria Werft.

After WWI, Trieste was ceded to Italy and the firm continued building vessels for Italy.

In 1929 STT merged with Cantieri Navale Triestino to form Cantieri Riuniti dell' Adriatico (CRDA). CRDA Trieste became part of the Fincantieri group in 1984.
