The Fleets

Algemeene Stoomvaart Maatschappij, Rotterdam 1914-1924

The shipbrokers firm of Wambersie & Zoon founded in 1914 Algemeene Stoomvaart Maatschappij at Rotterdam and ordered three fruit carriers with passenger accommodation from British yards, the first two ships were delivered to the company and the third the steamer VAN STIRUM was seized by the British government due to World War One.
The ships carried passengers and mostly bananas from the Dutch Colony Surinam to Rotterdam.
This was not a great success due the inferiority of the Surinam bananas and World War 1 and the ships were sold in 1917 to Atlantic Fruit Company.

In 1921 three cargo ships were ordered from Dutch yards with the prefix SLOT but in 1924 the Algemeene Stoomvaart Maatschappij was liquidated and the three cargo ships were sold to the Middellandsche Zeevaart Compagnie also in Rotterdam.

Many thanks to Henk Jungerius and Ted Finch for their assistance in collecting this data. The following list was extracted from various sources. This is not an all inclusive list but should only be used as a guide. If you would like to know more about a vessel, visit the Ship Descriptions (onsite) or Immigrant Ship web site.
