In between, the 3 ships where renamed Pooldrecht, Pendrecht and Papendrecht, sailing for van Ommeren Shipping Rotterdam. I have sailed on the Pooldrecht for a while. Yes they where very good ships. Van Ommeren sold the 3 ships to Somalia en renamed in Opal Islands, Amber Islands and Topaz Islands. Scrapped in 1986.
Greetings from Holland.
