Contemporary skeleton model of a 50-gun small two-decker, circa 1691
Scale: 1:48. Built in the Navy Board style, the model is decked and partially planked. The monograms of William and Mary, 'W R' and 'M R', feature on the ornately decorated stern and date the model between 1689 and Mary's death in 1694.
A large number of small two-deckers of this class were built from 1691 onwards. A particularly interesting feature of this model is the almost vertical planking either side of the rudder below the stern galleries. Known as 'Square tuck' sterns, they had virtually disappeared in all but small craft after about 1630.
