This ship has been confused with the Sint Pieter (ID 1583).
This one was of the VOC Amsterdam and (according to Rif Winfield) also fought at:
1652/12/10 Battle of Dungeness
1653/02/18 Battle of Portland
1653/06/02-03 Battle of Gabbard

Vreughenhil, A. claims she was captured by the Italians in 1654.

However, a "San Pietro", described as a hired Dutch ship, fought for the Venetians at the 3rd Battle of the Dardanelles on 26-27 June 1656 (and was burned) and could have been this ship.
