1980s-1990s Japanese anime tv series about a young girl who was orphaned

I think it is Japanese anime tv series. The setting was set in Europe. It's a story about a young stubborn and troublesome little girl. She is quite a tomboy that's why her mother often scolded her because of her unladylike manners. She is quite close to her father. She is not really a good girl because she make "fun" of her family's friends' children and cousins. They were travelling on a ship and one night there was a strong storm and the ship is sinking. Her mother together with the other women are placed inside a smaller boat. There is a commotion because the little girl was not able to go into the small boat. The small boat was suddenly carried away by the big waves and was instantly gone. This was assumed that her mother died and only she and her father survived. She was grabbed by her father and together they floated on a log. After some time the little girl's father remarry a woman. The woman is jealous of the girl because the father really loves the little girl. When the father died the stepmom decided to give the little girl to her relatives. There she learns how to be polite and be good as she became a young lady.
