Wreck of the Amsterdam at Bulverhythe near Hastings

The Amsterdam was an 18th Century cargo ship of the Dutch East India Company. The ship started its maiden voyage from Texel to Batavia on 8 January 1749 but was wrecked in a storm on the English Channel on 26 January 1749. The shipwreck was discovered in 1969 in the Bay of Bulverhythe, United Kingdom and is sometimes visible during low tides. The wreck site is protected under the Protection of Wrecks Act since 1974. Some of the findings from the site are in the Shipwreck and Coastal Heritage Centre in Hastings. A replica of the ship is on display in Amsterdam.
