34-guns Mahonesa Class Frigates

Ship Pack

The Mahonesa class was a class of Spanish 5th–rate frigates, armed with 34 cannons and part of the “Armada Real”. Often considered the best frigates in the Spanish Navy, they had a designed crew of around 280, and were armed with 26 12–Pounder guns in the lower deck and 8 6–Pounder guns in the upperdeck.

Mahonesa 1789 / Ninfa 1795

The Santa Monica – aka Mahonesa – was the first of a series of 6 frigates of 34 guns, built in the Minorcan port of Mahón, and had as her first service the transport of troops of Mallorca. This ship performed various services along the Mediterranean sea, and took part to French Revolutionary Wars until she was captured by the HMS Terpsichore on October 13, 1796 on the Cape of Gata, after a fight of three hours with 21 dead crewmen.

This ship pack can also be used to represent the Spanish Mahonesa class frigate “Ninfa 1795”.

Diana 1792 / Proserpina 1797

The Diana was one of the six Mahonesas-class frigates built at the Mahón shipyard in Minorca, based on French and British construction techniques and improving upon them – She was the fastest ship of her class. It participated in the evacuation of the Spanish forces at the Siege of Roses during the French Revolutionary Wars. On 13 October 1796, she was captured after an action against HMS Terpsichore at the Strait of Gibraltar, nearby Cape Gata.

This ship pack can also be used to represent the Spanish Mahonesa class frigate “Proserpina 1797”.

HMS Hamadryad 1797 / HMS Mahonesa 1796

The HMS Hamadryad, before her capture, was named “Ninfa” — a 36–gun Spanish frigate built at Mahon, on the island of Minorca. After her capture, Ninfa was taken to Gibraltar where she was commissioned under Thomas Elphinstone as HMS Hamadryad. After capturing two privateers, her career as an English ship was a short one, as she sank whilst trying to shelter from a storm in Algiers Bay, on 25 December 1797.

This ship pack can also be used to represent the British Mahonesa class frigate “HMS Mahonesa 1796”.
