stepping stones of maritime history


The Burgzand Noord 16 (BZN 16) is a 17th/18th-century shipwreck.


Wooden wreck parts were reported by government archaeologists in 2002.The first multibeam recording of the Burgzand Noord 16 (BZN 16) wreck area was made in 2011. In the 2011 recording, however, no evidence of any shipwreck was found in a radius of 50 m from the reported location. This may be because the location was not accurately recorded or the wreck parts had eroded and washed away. The latter is a plausible explanation as the area had deepened by 2 m since the first report of the wreck.
