Willem de Zoete, Heer Haultain (1565 – 26 September 1637, Sluis) was a Dutch Admiral of the 17th century. He served as a Lieutenant-Admiral from 1601 to 1627. He led a Dutch fleet of 20 warships, supplied under the terms of the 1624 Franco-Dutch treaty, into the Siege of Saint-Martin-de-Ré (1625) against a Huguenot uprising. His fleet would be removed from French service in February 1626 after a resolution of the States-General in December 1625.
