One of the most beautiful 17th century English ships, HMS Prince was designed by Phineas Pett, the builder of the Sovereign of the Seas. A first class vessel armed with 100 cannon and carrying a wartime crew of 780, Prince was launched at Chatham in 1670. HMS Prince fought her first battle in 1672 during the third war between England and Holland under the flag of the Duke of York. Even though the Prince was victorious, she was badly damaged during the conflict. She served the Crown until 1692. A contemporary shipyard model (today at the Science Museum London) and a drawing by Willem van de Velde the Elder (today in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam) give a good impression how she looked. Especially her stern was extensively decorated with gilded carvings.
