Admired for her extreme manoeuvrability, her architect was the famous jacques Noel Sane. Her design of open galleries became common in English ships. She required 700 men for the smooth running of the vessel.
This wonderful scale model is scratch built using various fruit woods for the plank decking, hull and fittings, with exceptional details, including the 74 individual cast canon, upon moving wood carriages. Scale linen sails, and intricate rigging are in abundance.
