Corel HMS Peregrine, English 6th Rate AASN60
Our model of H.M.S. Peregrine, is based on one of the original plans of Keltridge's times, for the Admiral, and is the reproduction of a small vessel classified as "sixth rate", armed with 18-20 small caliber cannons, built in 1686 for the fleet of King George III.
These types of vessels were too small and lightly armed to participate in the great naval battles alongside the much mightier, so called "line" ships, and were, therefore, used for other purposes, such as to escort cargo ships, for exploration, transporting messages or for the travel of important persons. King George III chose a unit of this type for himself in 1749, and had its internal furnishing radically transformed, becoming the famous Royal Yacht "Caroline".
