Dutch Ship "Soeverein" at the Sail In parade from IJmuiden to Amsterdam (North Sea Canal), Sail Amsterdam 2010 (Holland)
The "Soeverein" was a freight ship which has been converted into a three-masted sailing vessel.
The name is derived from Latin and means roughly "highest power". The ship is a replica of a traditional pinnace,
such as those built in the Netherlands in the 17th century for trade routes in the South-East Asian region.
