A boeier yacht, smalschip and galjoot
In the centre is a weather-bow view of a boeier yacht on the port gybe before a light breeze. Close on her starboard beam is a smalschip dead before the wind. A galjoot is at anchor to the right.
This drawing is one of six that are broadly carried out, but with light fluid wash, ruled horizons and lack of precision in the distant ships, suggesting the Elder's work. The work is approximately dated by style and watermark.
