HNLMS Overijssel was one of eight Friesland-class destroyers and was built at the Wilton-Fijenoord in Schiedam. The keel laying took place on 15 October 1953 and the launching on 8 August 1955. The ship was put into service on 4 October 1957.[2]

On 8 June 1977 Overijssel, with the frigate Tromp, the replenishment ship Poolster and destroyer Groningen, visited Leningrad. This was the first Dutch squadron to visit Leningrad in twenty one years.[3][4]

The ship participated in a rescue mission on 13 and 14 August of the 1979 Fastnet race, the last of five races of the Admiral's Cup.[2]

8 February 1982 the ship together with the frigates Tromp, Callenburgh, Van Speijk, Piet Hein and the replenishment ship Zuiderkruis departed from Den Helder for a trip to the USA to show the flag and for 200 years diplomatic relations. The ships returned to Den Helder on 19 May 1982.[5]

On 11 June 1982 the vessel was decommissioned and sold to the Peruvian Navy.[6]
