Shiplovers Homepage, maintained by Roel Zwama, is a website on Dutch merchant ships.
There are pages, with photos and details (in Dutch), on the former Nederland liner Johan van Oldenbarnevelt
(later the ill-fated Lakonia) and the former Rotterdam Lloyd liner Sibajak as well as Waterman.

You may use my images on another website.
Then please credit them as being from the collection of Björn Larsson,
and preferably provide a link to my Introduction page.
Thank you!
