Two Dutch boeier yachts under sail

A pen and oil panel drawing of Dutch boeier yachts in a moderate breeze. They are probably meant to be in the area of Amsterdam harbour. On the left is a boeier yacht with a man and a woman seated amidships in the cockpit. She has a large ensign presumably red, white and blue with the arms of Amsterdam and lion supporters in the white. On the right, and a little further away is a second boeier yacht with a man seated on the cabin top and two other men aft. The helsman is shown holding a flagon. She has a striped pendant with a coat of arms, flagon and four-leaf flower. Boeier yachts were the characteristic private yachts of the 17th century. Amongst the decorative features are the carved rudder heads often in the form of human heads. The recreational nature of these yachts is stressed by the civilian figures within them, in the right hand yacht the helmsman is drinking from a flagon.
