On a voyage from Ymuiden to Nassau, the Niagara met a severe gale on 28th January 1965, in the Atlantic, losing some 400 square feet of plating. She limped into Ponta Delgada where temporary plates were fitted. The Niagara was then towed to Marseilles for drydocking, but it was found that repairs would not be economic. She was sold for scrap and arrived at Castellon on 29th October 1965.
