I read on the internet that a whale factory named Bromendar was bought in March 1961 by Nitto Hogei Co. (now Del Mar Co.) and renamed Nichiei Maru .

I know that the 1st WILLEM BARENDSZ was renamed BLOEMENDAEL in 1955 to release her name to the 2nd WILLEM BARENDSZ.
Is the vessel referred as BROMENDAR a mispelling of BLOEMENDAEL or was it a different ship?
