The Joazeiro moored at Port Dom Pedro II, in Paranaguá. This steamship originally sailed for the German shipping company Hamburg-Süd as the Santa Lucia. With the outbreak of World War I, she took refuge in the Port of Salvador and, in 1917, was seized there by the Brazilian government and renamed the Joazeiro. She served Lloyd Brasileiro for many years, and was scrapped in Rio de Janeiro in 1955.
