The Dutch statenjacht of 17th century


In 17th century the Dutch built small swift-sailing vessels as scouts and dispatch boats, so-called statenjachts. They were also used for speedy transport of important people. They often were decorated and more elegant than usual. By mid of 17th century the somewhat inconvenient sprit sails were replaced by gaff sails that could be easily furled with clewlines.

 

The ship shown here flies the Dutch national flag with the VOC of the Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) at the stern, and the flag of Friesland as jack.
