Statendam

On a beautiful sunny morning the Statendam is seen being moored at Pier 35s in San Francisco. The ship is engaged in a cruise along the American West Coast in the sixties. The beautiful color scheme of the Holland America Line ship matches perfectly with the blue sky. In the foreground we see the Miki-Miki tug Sea Lark, from the so-called Miki-class. A special feature of these tugs was the completely wooden hull.

History

During her career, the Statendam (1957) was soon to be overshadowed by the Rotterdam (1959), the newest and largest flagship of the Holland America Line by that time. Statendam was actually a – successful – preliminary study of the famous Rotterdam. Among other things, this can be seen in her beautiful fanning bow. Statendam has made an important contribution to the transformation of the Holland America Line into a real cruise company.
