Google will turn up lots of examples of Caravelas and other ships used in the same times.

Thank you very much for you suggestions!

But this is not what I am looking for.
Maybe you should re-read what I wrote.

I am trying to find examples of fully-rigged (three masted squaresail ships)
between 1600 and 1650 in the range of 500 to 600 metric tons displacement.

Basically frigates or armed merchantships with only one (closed) gundeck
(like the different East India Tradingcompanys for example)
from all possible nations, to be able to compare their styles, rigging and hullconstruction.

Most of them had a spitsailtopmast during that period -
like in the second picture in my 2nd post here.
