One ship that I have not seen mentioned: Sint Johannes, an Amsterdam Directors' ship from 1653

A ship, the Sint Johannes, was listed on 8 February 1653, and the details were given, but I have not recognized that this ship is mentioned in any source that I have seen (certainly not in Ron van Maanen's list). This must be an Amsterdam Directors' ship, and I have the details:
The ship Sint Johannes

Length from stem to sternpost:  125ft
Beam inside the planking:        29ft
Hold:                            12-1/2ft
Height between decks:             7ft
