Dominican Republic interested in Dutch patrol vessels in 1958-1959

The former Dutch vice-admiral Burghard (1) reported to the Dutch firm N.V. Nederlandsche Vereenigde Scheepsbouw Bureaux (NEVESBU)about his visit to Ciudad Trujillo, Dominican Republic between 27 December 1958 and 9 January 1959.(2) Although the bid of NEVESBU with interest was received by the authorities, was none order for new building given. The problems in Cuba forced the Dominical Republic to acquire as soon as possible three second hand patrol vessels en to fit out their aged patrol vessels with new engines. NEVESBU supplied on 24 January a bid for the building of six ships, three second hand ships and engines of three aged ships. The Royal Netherlands Navy was willing to sell the Batjan (3), Boeroe (4) en Ceram (5) to the Dominican Republic is replacement by new building was allowed.(3) Those three vessels were examined and the conclusion was that they were in a good condition of maintenance. On 2 February was a bid sent for project 219 consisting of 4-1450hp engines for each ship. Nine days later was again an artist impression of the patrol vessel sent. Burghard visited again Ciudad Trujillo between 30 January and 5 February and spoke there admiral Admiral Facundo Esteva and staff members. The Dutch bid was considered to be the cheapest and the best. The Dutch department for economic affairs pointed out that paying with products with coffee, cacao, sugar and so on by the Dominican Republic was somehow problematic. Payment in dollars was however none problem.

In March however it became clear that the Dominican Republic no longer was interested in the Dutch bid. All available (financial) resources were to be used for strengthening/fitting out of the army. Apparently the navy was of secondary interest. The Dutch firm Mantel en Korting was informed that the sale of the frigate Batjan was no longer restricted. On 24 June however was again a meeting with the representative of the Dominican Republic to which a new bid for 3-550 tons with 4 engines (project number 2128) included an artist impression was supplied. On 16 July was after an discussion with the Kon.Mij. De Schelde a bid sent for 3 patrol vessels fitted out with 2 diesel engines (project 2127). Strangely enough was the delivery time for project 217 three months longer.

The projected Portuguese seaplane tender Sacadura Cabral of 1931



Portugal was original a kingdom but which was replaced by a republic in 1910. As a result of political chaos and economic problems was the republic replaced by a national dictatorship in 19126. António de Oliveira Salazar who was Finance Minister managed to restore the bankrupt Portuguese economy with as result in 1933 the founding of the Estado Novo (New State) which was described as a single party corporative regimen. In that period Portugal still possessed a colonial empire consisting of Asian and African possessions. Salazar became in 1932 also prime minister until 1968. These years were still restless with for instance a mutiny within the navy in 1936 and when two warships shoot at the fortresses Almada and Alto Duque at Lisbon.

The seaplane tender Sacadura Cabral was according to Jane’s Fighting Ships of 1931 planned to be build at the yard of the Cantieri Riunii dell’Adriatrico at Trieste, Italy with a displacement of 5,100 tons (normal) and with the dimensions 406’8”x 57’3”x 32’8” or 124 x 17,5 x 10 metres. The armament was to consist of 4-4.7” guns, 4-40mm anti aircraft pompoms and 2 bomb throwers and she could carry with her 14 hydroplanes. The two geared turbines and 4 Yarrow boilers supplied 14,000 shaft horse power and while driving two screws allowing a speed of 22 knots while with a speed of 12 knots and a oil bunker capacity of 830 tons she had a range of 10,000 nautical miles. Qua design she was comparable with the Australian seaplane tender HMS Albatross of 1928.

There was an extensive naval shipbuilding program planned which however lacking financial funds never was realized. The Dutch newspaper Het Vaderland evening edition dated 13 January 1931 reported a item dated Lisbon 13 January according to which the Portuguese cabinet asked British, French and Italian shipyards to come with tenders for the building of warships including a small cruiser, a mother ship for planes and 4 submarines. The same newspaper daily edition dated 18 September 1933 wrote that the Portuguese cabinet decided to execute the 1931 program included the building of the mother ship. Total costs of this part of the program were estimated to be around 20,000,000 Dutch guilders.

The Dutch naval magazine Marineblad dated 1933 no. 5 referred to the magazine Schiffbau dated 15 June reporting that finally was decided to built the Portuguese aircraft mother ship although in Italy. With a displacement of 5.600 ton were her dimensions to be 124 x 17,5 x 5 metres. The turbines supplied 14.000 hp allowing a speed of 22 knots. The armament consisted of 4-12,6cm guns, 4-7,6 cm guns and 4-4 cm guns. In the hangar were workshops planned and storage for 12 [sea] planes . These planes were to be catapulted at the started and by retuning loaded back on board with cranes.

Dutch shipyards in 1957 interested in South American navy orders

In 1957 the former Dutch vice admiral Burghard (1) intended to make a voyage towards South-America in behalf of the N.V. Nederlandsche Vereenigde Scheepsbouw Bureaux (NEVESBU) to investigate the possibilities in obtaining orders for shipbuilding.(2) At that moment was it however hardly impossible for the mayor shipyards in Netherlands to realize orders excepted for building minesweepers. The Kon.Mij. De Schelde at Vlissingen, Netherlands was interested in building a submarine to deliver over five years.(3) Building ships in South America was for the time being not attractive for the NEVESBU-shipyards. There were willing to advice, making designs or training personnel. Training would be a lot easier if the first ship was built in the Netherlands. The next ships could be then built in South-America for which parts could be delivered by the Dutch shipyards. Burhard intended to visit first Venezuela, Brazil and Argentina and if there was time left to visit Chile, Peru and Colombia.

3. The KMS had a long history dealing with the building of submarines between 1904-1940 but had built since the Second World War none submarines herself anymore. Despite this she was involved in designing the so-called 3-cylinder submarines. This was design was offered to several South American and European navies but only for the Royal Netherlands Navy were in fact this kind of submarines built. Nowadays is one example (the Tonijn) preserved as museum ship at Den Helder, Netherlands.

Dutch shipyard want to built patrol vessels for Tunisia in 1959

In February 1959 asked the Dutch firm Centraal Scheepsbouw Bureau at Rotterdam, Netherlands the Dutch .V. Nederlandsche Vereenigde Scheepsbouw Bureaux (NEVESBU) at The Hague, Netherlands to assist her in obtaining an order from the Tunisian government.(1) The first firm cooperating with the shipyard Schouten at Muiden, Netherlands an bid to Tunisia for building patrol vessels with a length of 35 metres, armed with 2cm machineguns and fitted out with the Dutch made RUB Werkspoor engines. Apparently it was a similar design to the Pakistan project in 1953 and for which Werkspoor offered to built the engines. The Centraal Scheepsbouw Bureau had a contact person in Tunisia and believed to have a well chance to obtain the order which was mainly to be financed by the USA. De Kon.Mij. De Schelde were not unwilling the give the necessary support if the other NEVESBU-members also agreed under the condition that the engines were to be ordered at the NEVESBU-members.(2)
