Looking for Zeeland ships during 1700 to 1800

I am browsing Ron van Maanen's largest document, looking for Zeeland ships during the period of 1700 to 1800. I am up to "Dolfijn" and all I have seen are many vessels of the type "uitlegger". I found the "Naval Sailing Warfare History 1650-1850" Wiki, and saw that there were at least some large Zeeland ships during this period. For example, after I saw the Wiki, I was able to find Ron's reference to the Zierikzee, built in 1733 and last mentioned in 1782:
The ship Zierikzee, built in 1733, rebuilt in 1743

Dimensions: 156ft x 44ft x 18-1/2ft

  1. Ron van Maanen, unpublished manuscript "Dutch Warships 1600-1800", undated but circa 1992
