Lady Nelson

Level: Beginner/Intermediate

HMS Cutter Lady Nelson 1800. Lady Nelson was built at Deptford in 1799 and purchased by the Royal Navy in 1800.

She was primarily used for custom and excise duty as she was fast due to her sleek lines. She remained in service until 1825.

Double planked hull, metal fittings, hardwood display base and columns.

The cutter Lady Nelson is modelled on a typical British cutter of the late eighteen century. The cutter is a native British design and was originally developed by the smugglers of Folkestone and surrounding areas. It didn't take long for the Navy to appreciate the merits of the cutter's design and they were widely used from the mid-eighteenth century, precisely to counter smuggling.
