stepping stones of maritime history


The Burgzand Noord (BZN 2) wreck is that of an armed 17th-century merchant ship loaded with scrap bronze cannons.


The first multibeam recordings of the site are from 2012. The recordings from 2013, 2014 and 2016 show slight sedimentation of the area.

The wreck is protected – at least partly – by polypropylene nets. Divers from Duikclub Texel (Diving Club Texel) observed that parts of the protective nets had disappeared or been torn. These were repaired in 2017.
