The Marco Polo held the record of the fastest ship for 15 years, from 1852 to 1867. On a trip from Quebec on July 22, 1883 she sprang a leak north of Prince Edward Island. Her crew deliberately grounded her on a beach at Cavendish, Prince Edward Island and cut her masts cut down to prevent the wind from blowing her further onto the shore. They were able to preserve her until a strong gale came the following month. Today the wreck site is considered a National Historic Site.
