17th century Dutch vessel The PRINS WILLEM was probably the
largest square stern ship of the fleet of the Dutch East India Company. Fitted
out at Middleburg in 1649-1650, the Prins Willem was subsequently modified
for use as a warship. In addition to demolishing the forecastle and the stern
bulkhead, 6 firing ports were added, three on each side. For a brief period,
the PrinsWillem was the flagship of the famous Admiral Witte de Witt. Returned
later to the Company, it once again traded with the Indies between 1653 and
1660. Our model is a detailed and faithful reconstruction of the ship fitted out
by the Dutch East India Company for commercial traffic.
