Royal Yacht Caroline Ship's History

The Royal Caroline was built in 1749 in Deptford at a time when England was in the process of becoming a world military power. It was at that time under the Hanoverian monarchy of George II and George III that the Royal Yacht Caroline was used as the principal royal yacht. The Royal Caroline was named after Queen Caroline (Caroline of Brandenburg-Ansbach) who exerted substantial influence over King George II. She still remained the main royal yacht under the reign of George III.The Royal Caroline is arguably classified as the most beautiful royal yacht ever built and a very important stage in the refinement of ship building. Ships in those days were made using empirical methods of trial and sailing experimentation under various conditions. Most characteristic ship designs were derived from intuitional changes made by experimentation. The British Admiralty kept the design of the Royal Caroline and used it on many ships between 1750 and 1800.
