In 1875 one built in Ostend shipyards for the maintenance
of the state fleet, after first digging Zeewezendok, all this on the
eastern shore of the harbour channel. Belgium renewed its ocean liner fleet on time to meet the increasing demands in terms of speed and luxury on board.
The last built radar ocean liner, the Princesse Clémentine from 1897, that was the first in 1903 equipped with a broadcasting station,
remained in service until 1928. The first steam turbine ocean liner, the Princesse Elisabeth, was built in 1904 at Cockerill. Our ocean liners were part of the fastest in the Canal traffic. This also applied to the
turbine ships, because in 1905 the Princesse Elisabeth obtained the 'blue pennant' as the fastest ocean liner in the world! It then ran around 25 knots (46 km/h or), a record that endured until in 1907 with the
rise of the transatlantic Lusitania and Mauretania, of the Cunard Line.
