The East Indiaman Prins Willem (misspelled on the ship herself as “Prins Willim”) was built for the Dutch East India Company in 1650 in Midelburg.
She was pressed into service during the First Anglo-Dutch War and served as the flagship of Witte de With at the Battle of the Kentish Knock.
In 1662, during a voyage out east, she sank off Madagascar.
The ship is famous for her replicas: a contemporary 1:50 model is still on exhibit in the Rijksmuseum, while a full-size replica was constructed for the Nagasaki Holland Village theme park in Japan. After the park’s closure, the replica was moved to Cape Holland, Netherlands, where she was later lost to fire in 2009.

This is a great file and printed really well on my CR-10S.
I will be purchasing more of Henry’s 1/600 ships.
