Deck Plan and Additional Specifications


An unusual Photograph of the SS Op Ten Noort partially hidden behind a Tug in the Dutch Indies

This page has basically two special and rare items. The first item is a partial deck plan, that has a side-on drawing of the ship and the top three decks of the ship, being “Top Deck House”, “Bridge Deck” and “Boat Deck”. You will note that both Bridge and Boat decks offer vast amounts of deck space for First Class passengers, whilst on Boat Deck far forward there are the two deluxe suites that have private facilities. In addition there are a further twenty twin and single bedded cabins all with share facilities. The second item is a comprehensive listing of all her specifications, covering every single detail! I am sure that this will be of interest to the ship lover!
