Launched in June, 1949, the flagship of the Inland Steel Co., Fleet is the largest, fastest and most efficient ore carrier on the Lakes. With an overall length of 678 ft., the ship carries 20,000 tons each trip at a speed of 16 miles per hour, is equipped with the latest electronic devices for navigation and communication. The ship was named in honor of the man who was President of the Inland Steel from 1941 to 1949. It's a real thrill to see this majestic shop glide gracefully through the waters of the Great Lakes surrounding Michigan.
