The Venus & Lynx were the first iteration of Pieter Glavimans's new corvet design. Similar to the Wreker-class, several would be build in Amsterdam and some in Rotterdam.
The venus would be constructed in Amsterdam by Pieter Schuijt Jr , overseen by Glavimans himself the Lynx would be constructed in Rotterdam. Both ships would lead completely different career paths.
The measurement of the ships (amsterdamse voet):
120 ft x 33 9/11 ft x 16 8/11 ft
34,0 x 9
