Click below for a list of the ships that are mentioned in the Carlisle & Holbrooke Naval Adventures and descriptions of the principal ships.

A word of caution: the standard references don’t all agree on the descriptions of individual men-of-war of the eighteenth century. That’s not surprising as over a long career ships would have had a number of different armaments, rates and rigs. The descriptions that I have offered for historical ships are correct (as far as I can tell) for the chronology of the series.
