05 Liners America

The s.s. ‘America’ was an ocean liner of 33,352 gross tonnage which entered service in 1940 for the United States Lines. She was designed by the famous naval architect William Francis Gibbs. In the 54 years between her introduction and her wrecking in 1994, she had eight different owners (of which one twice) and sailed under the names of ‘America’ (carrying this name three different times), ‘West Point’, ‘Australis’, ‘Italis’, ‘Noga’, ‘Alferdoss’ and ‘American Star’. She served most in passenger service as s.s. ‘America’ and s.s. ‘Australis’ between America and Europe and between Europe and Australia. In this volume of Liners the history of the ship is decribed when she sailed under the American flag from 1940 until 1964. In Liners no. 06 the history of this unique liner will be continued during the period 1964-1994. The front cover of Liners no. 05 is adorned by a beautiful painting of the ‘America’ of the Dutch painter Hans Breeman.
