The SS Rijndam (also spelled Ryndam) was a ship that was built for Nederlandsch-Amerikaansche Stoomvaart-Maatschappij in 1951. She was built by N.V. Dok en Werfmaatschappij Wilton-Fijenoord Schiedam. The original intent of her design was to be designated as the freighter Dinteldyk (which was also designed to carry a small complement of passengers). A decision was made to have her redesigned as a liner in 1950 but she still retained the stout hull lines and sturdy machinery of a freighter.
Builder of the SS Rijndam (1951) is Netherlands.
