SURVEYOR'S NOTEBOOK

Nieuw Amsterdam

By David Tantrum

Recently Martin & Ottaway had a job on the 2010 Nieuw Amsterdam IV.

Martin & Ottaway personnel have been involved with Nieuw Amsterdams’ since 1937.

Henk van Hemmen sailed as an engineer on board the 1937 Nieuw Amsterdam II.

We also carried out various projects on the 1983 Nieuw Amsterdam III to include mechanical and allision damage insurance claims assistance.

We don’t have any records of ever having been involved with the 1905 Nieuw Amsterdam I, but, still, that is over 80 years association with Nieuw Amsterdams.

Note:  In 2000 Holland America Line also brought an “Amsterdam”, not a “Nieuw” into service.
