Grace Line began service in 1882, with ports of call between Peru and New York. Regular steamship service was established in 1893, with a subsidiary called the New York & Pacific Steamship Co., that operated under the British flag.
Ships built outside the United States prior to 1905 were banned from US registry. US-flag service began in 1912 with the Atlantic and Pacific Steamship Company. The activities of both companies and the parent firm were consolidated into the Grace Steamship Company beginning in 1916.
The firm originally specialized in traffic to the west coast of South America; then later expanded into the Caribbean. After World War II the Grace line operated 23 ships totaling 188,000 gross tons, and an additional 14 more on bareboat charters.
Incorporated in 1916, The Grace Steamship Co. combined the old entities of the New York & Pacific Steamship Co. and the Merchants Line. The emerging company became the Grace Line.
