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.
