The pre-war tanker Reginolite was German-built for Imperial Oil in 1926 at the AG Vulcan Stettin shipyard. She was in a notable collision with the Craster Hall (1909, briefly the USS Craster Hall) off Talara Point, Peru, on June 19, 1927, which left the Craster Hall a wreck on the beach. Reginolite became the Imperial Regina in 1946, and was broken up by Northern Metals in Philadelphia in 1949.
