Pretty much says it. Prins Willem was a replica of a 17th century Dutch East India Company trading vessel built in the '80's and long on display in Japan. Most recently at Den Helder.
Amazing pix available on the usual internet news sourses.

That's what a fireship set loose in an anchorage would have looked like I guess. Yikes!

Just saw it on the news. Agreed, what a shame.
