The Van Dijke family commissioned Shipyard Kooiman Hoebee in Dordrecht to deliver the newbuild dry bulk vessel Splendid. The Splendid measures 135 x 11.45 metres with a draught of 3.50 metres, and has a loading capacity of 3,831 tonnes. The hull of the Splendid is a newly developed vessel based on a design by Van Duijvendijk.
The Polish Malbo shipyard was commissioned to build the hull. This shipyard has three locations in Poland: Novasol, Malczyce and Stettin. The 135-metre long vessels are built in two parts which are joined together at Stettin, the largest location. The hull of the Splendid was built in two parts in Novasol. The fitting out and finishing took place at Shipyard Kooiman Hoebee.
The designs of Joh. Van Duijvendijk have an excellent reputation due to their accurate economic proportions, such as a relatively high loading capacity with a relatively low ship resistance. For the Splendid, this resulted in a vessel with an optimal lines plan which was tested extensively by the MARIN in Wageningen. One clearly visible hull detail is the sharply swept fore, which flares strongly upwards so that the foredeck has quite a lot of space.
Another characteristic is the midship with a depth of 4.25 metres and a hold length of 99.60 metres which can accommodate 17 containers. The stern is built up high without bulwark, creating a low-maintenance aft deck. The hull has a number of special features with its longitudinal construction and double bottom of 0.70 metres. This uses high-tensile steel which creates a lightweight structure. The inner bottom is made from the strong and resilient Hardox steel (Swedish Steel), which also saves weight.
On the fore and aft ship, above the unladen waterline, several fender boxes have been incorporated in the hull along a length of around five metres. The boxes are filled with fenders of two types of material. The outer layer is hard and more or less wear-resistant, while the inner layer is made from foam and therefore is elastic and damping. The fenders are composed of Hakorit plastic, a technical rubber used widely in Europe in the maritime world, for instance for protecting pile moorings, jetties and the like.
