The ship carried ten chests with a total of more than 315,000 guilders and a crew of 208 men. 28 of them died before the ship reached the Cape of Good Hope. In 1727, the ship met its demise on a reef of the coast of Western Australia. 11 survivors left in a longboat to seek help in Batavia never to be seen again. The other survivors salvaged what was left of the original ship and built the Sloepie, the first ship ever built in Australia by Europeans 82 men finally reached Batavia four weeks after leaving Australia.
