HNLMS Abraham Crijnssen

Abraham Crijnssen, launched in 1936, is a Royal Netherlands Navy minesweeper, famous for its escape from Surabaya, Java in 1942, disguised as a tropical island. After the war, she cleared many minefields in the East Indies, then returned to the Netherlands and became a net-guardian ship. Decommissioned in 1961, she was then operated by the Dutch Naval Cadet Corps. In 1995 she was designated for preservation, and opened for visitors in July 1997 at the Dutch Naval Museum (Marinemuseum).
