Due to the odd way it is cropped at the left side it is thought that the painting might have been part of a larger painting, perhaps showing the same vessel from several angles as was common at that time. The ship is thought to be Dutch-built and in service for the Scottish navy on its way to attempt to establish a Scottish colony at Panama.
