The Cap San Diego is one of the last remaining ships of a series of six fast cargo ships built between 1961 and 1962 on shipyards in Hamburg and Kiel for the Hamburg-Südamerikanische Dampfschiffgesellschaft Eggert & Amsinck, the Hamburg-Southamerican Steamship Company. This type of ship represents the peak of conventional cargo shipbuilding. It belonged to the fast lines of its time with a big cold-storage hold and modern cabins for 12 passengers. Technical details: The ship with a 11,650 horsepower, two-stroke engine, is a good example of classical engine construction before the advent of electronic control engineering. The technical equipment is almost entirely preserved and in excellent working order. The interior design by the well-known Hamburg architect, Prof. C. Pinnau, is from the late 1950s and reflects the fashion of these days. The foredeck is extremely long, the middle part of the ship is a streamlined, closed construction. After many years abroad, the Cap San Diego returned to Hamburg in 1986.
