The Endeavour Ark Royal 18 was a first-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched in 1587. She was the largest and most powerful warship in the world at the time, and her design revolutionized naval warfare. The Ark Royal was armed with 80 guns and had a crew of over 500 men. She was the flagship of the English fleet during the Spanish Armada in 1588, and played a major role in the defeat of the Spanish invasion.

Design

The Ark Royal was designed by the master shipwright Matthew Baker. She was 165 feet long and 46 feet wide, with a displacement of 1,000 tons. Her hull was made of oak, and her masts were made of pine. The Ark Royal was armed with a variety of guns, including culverins, demi-culverins, and sakers. She also had four forecastles, which were used to mount additional guns.

History

The Ark Royal was launched in 1587 and immediately became the flagship of the English fleet. She served in this role for over 20 years, and was involved in many of the major naval battles of the period. In 1588, the Ark Royal was the flagship of Lord Howard of Effingham during the Spanish Armada. She played a major role in the defeat of the Spanish invasion, and was credited with sinking several Spanish ships.

The Ark Royal was also involved in the Battle of Cadiz in 1596, and the Battle of the Isle of Wight in 1597. She was decommissioned in 1608 and broken up in 1634.

Impact

The Endeavour Ark Royal 18 had a profound impact on naval warfare. Her design revolutionized the way that ships were built and armed, and her speed and maneuverability gave her a significant advantage in battle.
