    First rate ship of the line History:
    the First rate ship of the line rating was given to the British royal navy’s biggest and grandest ships of its time. Starting in the Jacobean era these ships carried around 400 men and had no less than 80 guns across its three gun decks. Beginning in the 18th century these ships carried 100 guns, 850 men and weighed 2000 tons. In comparison an elephant weighs 12,000-15000 pounds (6-7.5 tons), that’s 334 elephants for just one ship! Unfortunately due to the ships large size and weight the lower gun deck could only be used during calm seas to minimize the risk of swamping the ship, these ships also had too little storage for long journeys at sea. These restrictions later lead to the decision to only sail these ships during summer and only in the English Channel. The cost to build such ships was also massive which lead to them only being used in wartime and only by admirals as flag ships. During the first rate ship of the lines life span of 250 years only a few were able to be built and maintained at any given time. To this day only one first rate has survived (HMS victory) which was the famous captain nelsons flag ship during the battle of Trafalgar (now in Portsmouth England). In its time you would not want to mess with this ship in battle.

    The plots you recive will have the option for you to build below. That’s 12 plots of build space which is pretty big if you ask me. On top of the plots you also get the first ship of its kind in Bristol as well as on the server. And of corse the look of it is a massive reason why you would buy it. With its many decks there is so many places for storage (chests already in), we even have a fair amount of the interior within the ship so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy your beautiful new boat.

    One week remains in this auction.
