VOC-Ship Amsterdam

VOC-Ship Amsterdam

The VOC-ship Amsterdam was wrecked in a storm on January 26th, 1749 on the Bulverhythe shore near Hastings. The ship was on its maiden voyage from Texel to Batavia when the rudder broke off, she ran aground and sank into the mud.

A replica of the ship can be seen today at the Oosterdok in Amsterdam where it's moored and open for visitors. It was built between 1985 and 1990 at Lelystad by 400 volunteers.
