List of ships of the line of the Royal Navy

This is a list of ships of the line of the Royal Navy of England, and later (from 1707) of Great Britain, and the United Kingdom. The list dates from 1660, the year in which the Royal Navy came into being after the restoration of the monarchy under Charles II, up until the emergence of the Battleship around 1880, as defined by the Admiralty.

"For ships which were part of the English Navy prior to 1660, see List of early warships of the English Navy."

List of ships-of-the-line of the Royal Navy (1660-1688)

:"Number of main guns follows name (see Rating system of the Royal Navy)":These ships listed in the order of p162-163 "The Ship of the Line Volume I", by Brian Lavery, pub Conways, 1983, ISBN 0-85177-252-8

The Early Restoration Period (1660-1677)

This list includes several earlier ships which were "rebuilt" for the Royal Navy in this period - specifically the First Rate "Royal Prince" (in 1663), the Second Rate "Victory" (in 1666), the Third Rate "Montagu" (in 1675) and the Fourth Rates "Bonaventure" (in 1663) and "Constant Warwich" (in 1666). The process, which generally involved the dismantling in dry dock of the old ship and constructing it to a new design incorporating part of the materials from the old vessel, produced what were in effect substantially new ships with altered dimensions and sizes, and generally mounting a somewhat larger number of guns.

1706 Establishment

The 1706 Establishment established a desired set of principal dimensions for each 'class' (i.e. type) of warship from the 40-gun Fifth Rate up to the 90-gun Second Rate (First Rates and ships of less than 40 guns were not covered by the 1706 Establishment). As only the principal dimensions were specified, the design of individual ships remained with the Master Shipwright in each Dockyard.

List of ships-of-the-line of the Royal Navy (1755–1785)

By or soon after the appointment of Baron George Anson as First Lord of the Admiralty in 1751, the system of establishments that covered the design of British warships was abandoned, and with the appointment of Thomas Slade and William Bately as joint holders of the post of Surveyor of the Navy in 1755, new principles governed the composition of the battle fleet. No further three-decker 80-gun ships were built, and the 70-gun and 60-gun ships also ceased to be produced, being gradually replaced by new 74-gun and 64-gun ships. 50-gun ships were no longer considered to be fit to lie in the line, although 50-gun and 44-gun two-deckers continued to be built for cruising duties.:"Number of main guns follows name (see Rating system of the Royal Navy)"

List of ships-of-the-line of the Royal Navy (1830–1847)

Captain Sir William Symonds served as Surveyor of the Navy from 1832 to 1847. Captain Symonds was a naval officer and yacht designer, "who had risen to prominence by his success in competitive sailing trials between small warships. His selection implied a criticism of the dockyard-trained architects of the preceding 200 years".p15, Lambert "Battleships in Transition"] Symonds attempted a revolution in warship design. His ships were designed to be faster under sail, and have more room for the gunners to work the guns (improving ergonomics). To achieve this, his ships were larger, and used a different hull form to provide stability without needing large amounts of ballast. Unfortunately the Surveyor's department was understaffed for the amount of work they were undertaking, and mistakes were made. Symonds' designs had more stability than was desirable, with the result that they rolled excessively and therefore were poor gun platforms. Another problem with Symonds' ships was that they were very sensitive to the distribution of weights on board ship, such as the stores carried and consumed on a voyage.p66-87, Lambert "The Last Sailing Battlefleet"]

Symonds worked very closely with John Edye, an experienced and well-educated shipwright officer. Edye was responsible for the details of structure and construction. The ships that Symonds and Edye designed had far more iron in their structure than the previous generation of ships designed by Seppings.
