The Vrouw Maria™ History

It is a fascinating story of an ordinary ship transporting an extraordinary treasure of art and other valuables. From the ship's protest we find information about Vrouw Maria's last voyage. She left Amsterdam 5th of September in 1771. Vrouw Maria passed the customs in Denmark on September 23rd.

After drifting north apart from its route to St. Petersburg, she struck a rock once and then an other which damaged her rudder. The crew tried for several days to pump her floating again and with the help of islanders to salvage the cargo. Four days later, on October 8th, she was mysteriously lost during the night.

This is an exact model of the ship as she now rests at the sea floor. The model is made by one of the divers in the official team of divers who found the ship in 1999.
