Hi, vrienden !

In the 1960's was the ex- Hamburg/HADAG - ferry
"Buergermeister Diestel" sold as "Witte Swan" to Amsterdam interests as restaurant(?)-ship. I have reports, that this ship was still existing in 2002 in Rotterdam.

Does anybody know, if this ship is still existing, are there photos or any things of history ???

Hartelijk bedankt,
(and VIVA HOLLAND in Portugal - ik ben Oostenrijker, niet Duitser.....)
hGroeten
Werner

Duitser of Oostenrijker, als je Nederland ziet voetballen kunnen ze alle ondersteuning gebruiken.

Hallo Werner,

the ship is still existing and you can find her in Groningen as "Blauwe Zwaan".
I will place a photo later.

Hallo again,

here the promised pictures. I was mistaken, the name is still Witte Zwaan. The ship was recently undergoing a survey at Delfzijl. She is a clubhouse for the A.M.V.V., a social society for former barge skippers and moored at the Eemskanaal at Groningen.



The Bürgermeister Diestel



Todays Witte Zwaan, shortly after she was towed from Rotterdam to Groningen. At the moment she is in a better condition as shown on this picture.
