History of HMS PRINCE
The ship was launched 1670 in Chatham as a 1st rate with 100 cannon. She was designed by Phineas Pett, a relative of the Phineas Pett who built the famous Sovereign of the Seas in 1637. She took part in the Battle of Solebay 1672 during the Third Anglo-Dutch War.
In the London Science Museum there was a contemporary dockyard model of the ship on display.

The ship model was built without sails to allow for a
better view on the very detailed, impressive rigging. It is a very
beautiful fine piece of work, clearly showing the shape of the hull of
ships of that time.
The finely worked, detailed ship model is 1 : 68 scale.
Length is 85 cm, width 33 cm, height 88 cm.
Price of the ship model and transport
The price of the model is 4200 Euro, plus transport cost.
Transport: The ship model can be secured in a transport box. This way,
truck or air cargo over long distances can be safely done.
If you live close by, picking up the model with your car may be a good way, too.
