When the second Statendam was nearing completion in 1914 at the Belfast yard of Harland and Wolff, Ltd. In the summer of 1918, when in convoy off the Irish coast, she was attacked by a German submarine and was struck by two torpedoes - one in the engine-room, one in the forward boiler-room. She maintained her trim but settled a bit lower in the water. Attendant tugs took her in charge and set course for Lough Swilly.
The attacker had escaped, but on the following day another submarine, UB 124, motored right in between the screening warships and torpedoed the Justicia twice amidships. Even British shipbuilding was not proof against four torpedoes , and the stricken vessel sank by the stern. For hours on end the destroyers hunted UB 124 and at last they succeeded in getting her.
With the grim happenings of war left behind , the Holland-America Line turned its attention to the third and greatest Statendam of all. The Statendam is 674 ft 3-in long, with a beam of 81 ft 4-in and an overhanging top deck that gives an extreme breadth of 84 feet. Her displacement tonnage is 38,900 and her gross tonnage 28,291. Her passenger capacity is 1,670. She has a crew of 600.Diesel engines drive the auxiliary generators supplying electricity.
