ms. Johan van Oldebarnevelt (1930)

Excerpt uit een boek, "North Atlantic Seaway", geschreven door N.R.P. Bonsor (deel IV, pagina 1758):

The "Johan van Oldenbarnevelt" was built by Nederlandsche Scheepsbouw Maatschappij, Amsterdam for the Stoomvaart Maatschappij Nederland, in 1928-1930. She was a 19,787 gross ton ship, length overall 609 ft and beam 75 ft. She had two funnels, two masts, twin screws and a speed of 19 knots. There was accommodation for 338 first-class, 281 second-class and 64 third-class passengers. Launched on 3/8/1929 for the Stoomvaart Maatschappij Nederland, she was chartered to the Holland-Amerika Lijn in 1939 and carried out under that flag one round voyage from Amsterdam (departure 30/8/1939) to New York, carrying 634 first-class passengers. From 1940 to 1945 she was used as an Allied troopship and after the war she was refitted as a one-class vessel. On 2/9/1950 she commenced her first voyage from Amsterdam via Suez to Australia with 1,414 passengers. In July 1954 she made her first voyage chartered to the Netherlands Government from Rotterdam to Quebec and Montreal and in August 1958 she made her last voyage on this service, completing in all eleven round trips. In 1958-59 she was rebuilt at Amsterdam to 20,314 tons and accommodation for 1,210 one-class passengers and on 2/4/1959 she commenced her first voyage from Amsterdam to Southampton, Suez, Australia, New Zealand, Panama Canal, Port Everglades (departure 5/6/1959), Bermuda, Southampton and Amsterdam. On 30/6/1962 she commenced her last voyage under Dutch flag. It was similar to the one just described, but it included a call at New York (departure 12/9/1962). In all, she made 12 round trips on this route between 1959 and 1962. In 1963, she was sold to a Greek Line and renamed "Lakonia". In this service she was destroyed by fire on 22/12/1963, 200 miles north-northeast of Madeira, with the loss of 128 lives. The burned-out hulk was taken in tow, but she sank on 29/12/1963, 250 miles southwest of Gibraltar.
