Page history last edited by ManuBlasco 14 years, 3 months ago

Venetian 2nd Rates (50-60 guns)


The Second Rates displacement was originally c 1200 tons, in early 1690s increased to 1400 tons, again in late 1710s to 1500 tons, and again to c.1850 tons in 1770s (7 ships built including tow completed for France). From the second half of the XVIII century Second Rates were classified as Fregata grossa.

First Second Rates were armed probably in the same calibre of guns as First Rates but less guns per deck. These were 20 pdrs on gundeck, 14 pdrs on upper deck and 9/12 pdrs on quarterdeck. From the Second Morean War (1714-1718) Second Rates were armed with 30 pdrs on gundeck, 20 pdrs on upper deck and 9/12 pdrs on upper deck.
