First Pinnacle Delivered

Fincantieri delivered the 99,500-ton Koningsdam to Holland America this afternoon at their Marghera yard. M/S Koningsdam is the first of the Pinnacle class.

The papers were signed by Holland America president Orlando Ashford and shipyard Director Antonio Quintano, and that signaled for the flag change to take place where the Italian flag was lowered and the Dutch flag was raised for the first time. Koningsdam is registered in the Netherlands.
