  1. Batavia was a ship of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). It was built in Amsterdam in 1628 and armed with 24 cast-iron cannons, and a number of bronze guns. Batavia, shipwrecked on her maiden voyage on Australian waters, was made famous by the subsequent mutiny and massacre that took place among the survivors. Replica of the ship was constructed in workshop Batavia Werf in Lelystad, Netherlands. Construction of ship lasting from 1985 to 7 April 1995. Ship never was seaworthy but visited Australia in 1999 as cargo on oceangoing barge. I have visiting Batavia Werf twice in 2003 and 2015. Weared by climatic conditions ship was under endless repairs. Topmasts was removed with yards and significant part of rigging. Part I The ship Foto 1 Ship under sails - from net Foto 2-5 captured august 2015 Foto 6 -9 captured spring 2003 Tadeusz

  4. Hi All just uploaded a gallery of photos of the Batavia original timbers that are on display in the Shipwreck museum in Fremantle. I took these about 18mo ago while out there, and figured they would be a useful resource for anyone interested in VOC ships. Batavia dates from 1628. There are some interesting features and a couple of the cannon she was carrying as well. http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/gallery/album/648-batavia-shipwreck-wa-museum-shipwreck-galleries-fremantle/ Imgages are HD size - which kept them well inside the upload size limit. If anyone wants full size (18M pixel) of any pic PM and I'll forward it to you. Colin
