English Royal yachts at sea
A group of royal yachts are shown accompanying a ship flying the royal standard in rough weather. The King used these yachts to carry dispatches and important people around the coast, or to and from the Continent. Some noblemen also built similar vessels for their own use. In the left foreground is a royal yacht which has not been successfully identified. She has the royal standard of Charles II at the main which signifies a ship with either the king or the Duke of York on board. The incident recorded remains unclear but it is possible that it is a painting recording an earlier event, such as the passage of the Duke of York to Scotland in the 'Gloucester' before 1682.
