The Amsterdam ship Phesant

The modern spelling is Fazant, but the document that I have from 1652 spells the name Phesant. Jan Jansz Lapper, the shoemaker, commanded the Amsterdam ship Phesant during the First Anglo-Dutch War. Ron van Maanen has information about the Phesant:
The ship Phesant, built in 1646

Dimensions: 120ft x 29ft x 12ft, height between decks: 6-3/4ft

16 Nov 1652   28 guns: 18-12pdr, 10-6pdr
1 April 1653  32 guns: 18-12pdr, 14-6pdr
1 April 1665  38 guns: 18-12pdr, 16-6pdr, 4-3pdr

Crew: 120 men
