The Friesland was originally constructed in Holland, in 1663. The Friesland
was part of the great fleet of the United Province of Holland. She was a second
rank vessel, built around 1663 with 80 guns.
In 1672, she took part, under the command of De Ruyter’s Command, along with
77 other vessels, in the battle of Solebay against the Allied Anglo-French forces.
Friesland is particularly noted for the particular refinement of her poop decorations
and the superstructure of her decks.
