There is this fascinating list dating from 21 January 1653

I was looking at Witte de With's journal for January 1653 and there is this fascinating list of ships, with dimensions. There are no ship names, as far as I can tell:
140ft x 34ft x 14ft

130ft x 32ft x 14ft

East India Company
160ft x 36ft x 15ft x 8ft

118ft x 28ft x 13ft x 6ft

146ft x 36ft x 14ft (the dimensions of the Huis te Zwieten)

136ft x 30ft x 13-1/2ft x 7ft

137ft x 31ft x 13ft x 7ft

126ft x 27ft x 12-1/2ft

140ft x 34ft x 13-1/3ft x 7ft

136ft x 34ft x 13-1/2ft

137ft x 31-1/2ft x 13-1/3ft

130ft x 30ft x 12ft

120ft x 27ft x 12ft

130ft x 30ft x 13-1/2ft x 6-3/4ft

These seem to be ships under construction that might be purchased for use as warships.
