The TSS Nestor and the TSS Ulysses were explicitly built for the Australian Route by the Ocean Steam Ship Company/Blue Funnel Line with a capacity of 350 passengers each. The ships were designed as cargo/passenger vessels, which was reflected in the less luxurious accommodations shown in the photographs compared to steamship lines such as White Star and Cunard.
Both ships were Twin-Screw, Twin Triple Expansion engines producing 7,750 HP capable of speeds up to 13.5 knots. They were 563.2 feet in length, 68 feet in breadth and 40.2 deep.
