Three Amsterdam ships named Hollandia, from 1683 to 1734

Ron van Maanen lists information about three Amsterdam ships named Hollandia that were in service during the period of 1683 until 1734. There was a Hollandia built in 1683 that was wrecked in 1698. This ship was apparently built to replace the Hollandia, built in 1665, that was lost in 1683. The 1683 Hollandia had dimensions of 156ft x 40ft x 15ft and carried 72-74 guns. Another Hollandia was built in 1702 and served until 1726, when sold and was broken up. This Hollandia had dimensions of 161ft x 42-1/4ft x 16ft. The ship also carried from 72 to 74 guns. This was followed by another Hollandia built in 1725 by Gerbrand Slegt. This Hollandia served until 1734 when it was sold into the merchant service. The 1725 Hollandia had dimensions of 165ft x 46ft x 17-1/2ft. Sources:
