The Luipaard (the Leopard) perished on a reef south of Sulawesi on March 4 1650 when a convoy of five ships (the Tiger, Leopard, Bergen op Zoom, Aagtekerke and the Juffer) set sail for Ternate on a reef near Pulua Boeton. All 5 ships were lost. The crew (581 men) was saved and also most of the cargo was retained.
The remaining cargo was brought to Ternate by the Concordia. The crew members of the ships went to Batavia with a self-built ship from the wreckage, called 't Jagt van Vijven.
