I am still curious about a listing from Ron van Maanen for a jacht Brak

Ron van Maanen has a separate listing for a jacht named Brak, the same as the jacht built in 1649. This vessel is only listed in 1653, and has somewhat different dimensions and a captain who is unfamiliar to me. I have assumed that it was a variant listing for the jacht Brak, built in 1649, but I could be wrong:
The jacht Brak, (1 April 1653) kapitein Dirck Pieterssen Berthiens

Dimensions: 115ft x 25ft x 9ft, with a height between decks of 6ft

18 guns:
5 April 1653: 4-8pdr, 12-4pdr, and 2-3pdr guns

Crew: 70-90 men

  1. Ron van Maanen, unpublished manuscript "Dutch Warships 1600-1800", undated but circa 1992
