Famous replica ship Prins Williem burns

A sad end to a beautiful creation. A replica of the Prins Willem vessel has been destroyed by a fire in the historical museum harbor at Willemsoord in Den Helder, The Netherlands, 30 July 2009. The ship was built in 1985 at the Amels shipyard at Makkum and was 68 meters long and the highest mast was 54 meters

The replica of the VOC ship Prins Willem dating from 1651 was the showpiece of the maritime theme park in Den Helder. The park, based in the former Willemsoord state shipyard, is called Cape Holland.

The restoration of the former marine complex cost about 90 million euros. The design and attractions cost - excluding the Prins Willem replica - another 7 million euros.
