Sloops for the Royal Navy

Citizens of Corrington, shipwrights of the Brick Seas, and boatyards of Terra Nova. The Royal Navy hereby initiates a building program for mid-sized warships to safeguard the shipping lanes of the colonies.

This building program includes three types of vessels with each a different purpose, mainly within the classes 3 and 4. Class 3 vessels will be bought into the service for 50 dbs and class 4 vessels for 60 dbs.

  • Island defenses
    The success of the Corlander gunboats have led the admiralty to propose larger vessels of similar types akin to the galleys of old. Oar and wind powered warships with heavy guns, typically carried fore and aft. Low range, high manoeuvrability and heavy firepower makes them perfect to complement the gunboats for inshore defences.
  • Royal Customs and Pilot Corps
    With trade on the rise, the Royal Navy Customs and Pilots Corps is in need of swift vessels for conveyance of pilots and customs officers, and to hunt down smugglers and privateers. Highly manoeuvrable cutters, luggers and schooners with light armament and reasonable range.
  • Sloops-of-War
    The Royal Terra Novan Navy is in need of mid-sized warships to cover escort duties, general patrolling and similar. Typically well-balanced vessels, often brig- or snow-rigged, and able to sail the high seas.

 

Once a design has been submitted, the Navy Board will review it, and send any requests for change back to the constructor. (OOC: You may be asked to improve on your design to have it accepted, so it may be prudent to present the WIP before rigging.)

For the first 9 vessels, the best design of every three vessels commissioned will be awarded with a prize from the stock of dry-docked captures. (Class 3 or 4 vessel)

The Crown will assign these vessels to colonial enclaves as they are finalised, based on tactical needs.

 

Signed

Rear-Admiral Fletcher

Commander, Royal Terra Novan Fleet

 

PS. The Allcock estate has most graciously offered to finance this incentive, for which the crown is most grateful.

I have two ships in the works that might be fitting for this (excellent :thumbup:) initiative. One is almost done, I will post pictures in the shipwright thread to discuss it tomorrow.

Sounds like a good building program. Is it right to assume LDD builds are eligible?

Of course. We do not discriminate against ldd builds, although we hold them to similar standards in terms of build quality and presentation.

Awesome! Quality and presentation are definitely a priority when it come to build in LDD for me!

There is a little helper out there for things like this. As to not spoil its secret identity, I will only give you the letters of its name in alphabetical order: EGGOOL. :pir_tong2:

And already, the second vessel is ready, the 10 gun brig-of-war, the class 3 HMS Beagle.

I present her without the need for incentive.

@Bregir Allcock will be happy to finance this initiative 

Most welcome, good sir! I will edit it in - and boy am I happy there are several ranks in the order of the Compass Rose! :pir-grin:

The first vessel for this program, HMS Resolute. Purchased from The Oleon shipyards of Eltina.

That was fast :pir-wink:

Good work, @Bodi!

There is an artist somewhere in Eltina, I believe :pir-wink:

I really enjoy these pictures, so I always try to find a fitting one for these things - happy you enjoy them!

The admiralty will shortly decide on which vessel is to be rewarded a ship from the prizeyards.

Edit: The HMS Ymir has been licensed and 60 dbs transferred to Wellesley
