The famous naval architect, F.H. Chapman, in his treaty Architettura Navalis Mercatoria of 1775, sketched and described a small Dutch fishing boat. He finished it off, however, with light and pleasant decorations which transformed it into an original and elegant pleasure boat and gave it the name of A Dutch Herrenyacht. The Leida, too, has its origins in one of the typical Dutch fishing boats of the eighteenth century.
