The Canterbury Steam Shipping Company was established in 1904 and concerned itself with coastal trade about the South Island and lower North Island of New Zealand. Storm, named after the company’s first ship, would be its last. The ship was built in Scotland by Scott & Sons of Bowling. It entered service in 1961, a time when the company was struggling to make ends meet. Coastal trade was dwindling, and the ships of the Canterbury Steam Shipping Company were either sold off, chartered, or laid up in the years that followed. The final nail in the coffin was the introduction of rail ferries. These ships, purchased by the New Zealand Railways Department, linked the rail lines of the North Island to those of the South Island. In 1969 the Union Company, which now held much sway in the affairs of the Canterbury Steam Shipping Company, placed Storm and other Canterbury vessels under the control of the Holm Shipping Company. Storm was technically owned by Canterbury Steam Shipping Company until 1974, when that entity ceased to exist.

As a vessel of the Holm Shipping Company, Storm continued to visit ports around the South Island and lower North Island. Unfortunately, Holm ran into the same financial issues. Storm was laid up in December 1974. The ship was sold to Crossworld Management & Brokerage in 1975 and became known as the Surabaya Fortune. Less than two years later, Surabaya Fortune was sold to Pacific Internal Lines and received the name Kota Perwira. In 1984, Kota Perwira was sold to Thai Boon Roong Trading via the Sabah South East Asia Investment Corporation. This time, no name change occurred. In 1986, the ship was interned at Madras after gold bars and other contraband was discovered in her hold. The vessel was sold to John Fidel but a leak partially sank her in 1987. In 1988, Kota Perwira was sold to Indian breakers.

Lovely additions from everyone.
The MV Storm looks particularly nice and that is a nice potted history too.

The Holland America D ships
In 1922 the first motor, or Diesel ship on the Pacific coast of United States and Canada made her first voyage. The ship was the Dinteldyk, built at Harland & Wolff, and was soon joined by a sister ship named Drechtdyk, which also was built at Harland & Wolff.
In 1940, with the occupation of the Netherlands, the Dinteldyk was burnt as a result of fire, while at Rotterdam harbour, and was not considered to be worth repairing, she was scuttled as a block ship in 1944 and broken up post war. The Drechtdyk was captured by Germany, transferred to Hamburg-Südamerikanische Dampfschiffarhrts and was renamed Russelheim. She was used mainly in the Baltic, and in 1945 suffered mine damage, and later was damaged further in an aerial attack at Swinemunde. Recovered after the war in a damaged state she was soon scrapped after the war.

In 1929 two more similar ships were built for the North Pacific route, but this time they were built in the Netherlands, at the Wilton's Machinefabriek en Scheepswerf, Schiedam, and they had passengers accommodation for around 50. Both survived the war and after running into a mine field near Hamburg, Delftdyk was repaired and re-entered service as Dongedyk. The Damsterdyk was modernised in 1949 and re entered service as Dalerdyk

After the war the Holland America line started on rebuilding the fleet, replacing older tonnage and lost ships. In 1949 two new passengers and cargo ships were built the Diemerdyk and Dinteldyk. These were built at Wilton Feijenoord, and were engined by the same machinery as the American Victory ships, after the Dutch government purchased some engines from the United States. Two machinery sets were installed in the Diemerdyk.

Two more engines were destined for two more D ships, one of which was to be named Dinteldyk, but during construction the design was altered and the ship was completed as a passengers ship the Ryndam. A fourth ship was completed as a passengers ship as the Maasdam, which later was sold to Polish Ocean Lines and renamed Stefan Batory.
