Ship of 50 guns, port broadside
Scale: 1:60. A Navy Board full hull model of a fourth rate, 50-gun, two-decker (circa 1720). The model is decked and equipped and has rigging. This model represents the smallest of the vessels used in the line of battle, like the 'Falkland' (SLR0414), although they were mainly used in escort duties. Fourteen ships were built to the dimensions of the 1719 Establishment, including the 'Greenwich', which was launched at Chatham in 1731 and lost in a hurricane off Jamaica in 1744. They were 134 feet long, 26 feet broad, weighed 755 tons burden, and had a full complement of 300 men. They carried twenty-two 18-pound guns on their gun decks, twenty-two 9-pounders on their upper decks, four 6-pounders on their quarterdecks and two 6-pounders on their forecastles.
