It has been reported that the Rotterdam Drydock Company (RDM) and the Port of Rotterdam have purchased REMBRANDT, former ROTTERDAM (V), HAL flagship 1959-1997. It is speculated that the ship will come to Rotterdam shortly and will be overhauled at RDM. This has been seen from multiple reliable sources though no further details are forthcoming at the moment.

The news comes after an alternative site for the ship's preservation, Ijmuiden, decided that they would not support the ship.

For more information on the effort to save the ship, please see the Steamship Rotterdam Foundation/Stichting Behoud Stoomschip Rotterdam.

I imagine we will now all be holding our breath at further details of this great news.

convert94,

the above mentioned web site has since been hijacked and is now a porn site. I guess that's why you couldn't access it. The Foundation's new web site is http://www.ssrotterdam.net/.

There have been lots of recent developments - fairly worrying ones, IMHO. The Foundation's web site includes details on these.

Hello everybody,

the following great news was announced by the Foundation yesterday:

quote:
s.s. Rotterdam in good hands! (30-6-2005)
Today during a presconference the news was brought that the s.s. Rotterdam has been sold by the bankrupt “s.s. Rotterdam Ltd.”. The new owners, a consortium of Woonbron (a housing company) and Eurobalance (investor), intend to use the ship for the purposes of living, working and learning in the port of Rotterdam. The Albeda College has been contracted for this. The new company is called “De (The) Rotterdam”. At first an asbestos-safe situation will be created and the ship will go into drydock. Next year the ship will be ready for use. A letter of intent has been signed with the Steamship Rotterdam Foundation which reads a follows: “The Rotterdam and the Steamship Rotterdam Foundation agree that the s.s. Rotterdam must be conserved as a unique cultural, industrial and maritime heritage, and intend to work together in a sustainable relationship with the aim to do all that is necessary to reach the objectives of the Steamship Rotterdam Foundation. This letter of intend will be detailed in the near future. The Foundation will among other things advise the new company about the technical and museum functions on board. For more information see: http://www.derotterdam.com
