About the Speel-jaght
The Speel-jaght was one of the first dutch pleasure boats, which was owned by members of the richer class and used simply for the luxury and leisure voyages. In 1622, the first marina was built in Amsterdam providing the public with a secure place to dock their boats. This led to a rise in the purchase of private boats and yachts, such as the Speel-jaght.
