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 ship model is 1 : 68 scale. Length is 85 cm, width 33 cm, height 88 cm.

There are several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging.
