SS Great Britain was the first ocean-going ship to have an iron hull
and a screw propeller and, when launched in 1843, was the largest
vessel afloat. She originally carried 120 first-class passengers (26
of whom were in single cabins), 132 second-class passengers and 130
officers and crew but, when an extra deck was added, it increased the
number of passengers to 730.
