Interesting Facts & Figures
When the Dinteldyk (2) entered service in 1957, she was appointed flagship (1957-1970) of the North Pacific Coast service and was easily distinguished from HAL’s other ‘D’ class Combi-Liners by her dove-grey hull.
The Dinteldyk was reportedly capable of carrying 425,000 cu. ft. of general cargo including 111,000 cu. ft. of refrigerated cargo at temperatures from -10 deg. C (15 deg. F) to -20 deg. C (5 deg. F below zero).
The Dinteldyk had luxurious accommodations for sixty passengers in air-conditioned outside staterooms with private bath or shower, ample deck space, and graciously appointed public rooms including a lovely air-conditioned dining room.
