Derflinger is a Dutch vessel which was allegedly a part of the Urka fleet, designed especially for trading purposes. The ship was built in 1595 to assist the general growth of sea trade. According to the chronicler of Hoorn, the vessel was promoted by Pieter Janz Liborne, who enjoyed a busy trading relationship with Italy. These types of vessels were generally about 33 metres long and the beam was towering to a height of nearly 7 metres.
One of the main Derflinger’s features was its lightweight design and immense capacity of cargo carrying, able to carry more than 170 tons of cargo. It could be also easily manoeuvred by even a small crew. The hull was reportedly large whereas the deck appeared slender. Until the year 1683, these vessels carried half a dozen 4 pound guns and a couple of 2 pound guns.
