The most famous ship named “Sylvania” was a Cunard passenger liner, 608 feet long, 80 feet across and weighing in at 22,017 tons gross. Built in 1957 in the Clyde Bank Shipyards in Glasgow, Scotland, the Sylvania was one of the Cunard Line's new fleet of ships for the Canadian passenger market. The Cunard Steam Ship Line Liverpool to Montreal trip required a very special set of ships, because it required that they be able to travel up the Saint Lawrence Seaway.
