A Dutch states yacht is shown with many other vessels in a calm sea. The states yacht is in the centre flying a pendant and a common Dutch ensign at the masthead. She is firing a salute as a boat pulls away from her carrying distinguished visitors. The yacht is one laid down in 1645 for Prince Frederik Hendrik but completed after his death in 1647 for his son Willem II. In the left foreground is a pont or raft, with a deckhouse and close by is the fore part of a smaller vessel.
