The 'Charles Galley' before a light breeze
A panel painting of the 'Charles Galley'. She is shown in a light breeze towing an admiral's barge with several men in it. In the left background a two-decker starboard bow is under sail. There are two other ships on the left horizon. The 'Charles Galley' was one of the two galley frigates built in 1676 for service in the Mediterranean against the Barbary pirates or corsairs. She was armed with 32 guns and was classed as a fourth-rate ship until 1691. She can be identified from a detailed drawing of her by Willem van de Velde, the Elder (PAI7276).
