Furthermore, most of the ships are examples of the Dutch fluyt (“vlieten”), which was designed in the sixteenth century as a cargo vessel. Its efficiency, with capacity for twice the cargo of a typical ship and requiring only a small crew, was a great contribution to the rise of the Dutch seaborne empire during the seventeenth century. The series also features boeiers (“boyers”), a ship of. about 16 to 25m in length idea for the shallow waters around the Netherlands, and warships (“naves bellicae”) with cannons lined along their sides.
