The Jutholmen wreckYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
During the end of the 17th century, a cargo ship loaded with tar and iron was on its way back to Holland. Customs duties were to be paid at Dalarö, but instead the ship sank off the island of Jutholmen. And so the newly discovered wreck in the 1960s got its name. After that, the Maritime Museum conducted archaeological investigations and salvaged gold rings, fine buttons made of brass, objects decorated with amber, and precious porcelain with a Chinese design. The Maritime Museum’s 1970–74 investigations involved carefully measuring the wreck, and nearly the entire interior of the hull was laid bare. The hull, which has a squared-off bow and a rounded stern, is flat-bottomed and the hull rise about 5–6 metres above the seabed. The ship originally had three masts, and part of the foremast’s lower mast is preserved. Its most probably a smaller flute. The photos for the 3d model was just taken during one day so the model has less quality than our others seen here.
