Unnamed 81ft three-masted Yacht (no date) for the Duchess of Kingston

Scale: 1:48. Plan showing the body plan with half stern board decoration, sheer lines with inboard detail and decoration and figurehead, a section through the fore part of the quarterdeck bulkhead, and longitudinal half-breadth for an unnamed 81ft three-masted Yacht (no date), for the Duchess of Kingston.

Signed by James Martin Hilhouse [Shipbuilder, Painter and Merchant].

The reverse of the plan has a sheet pasted to it addressed to "Her Grace the Duchess of Kingston &c &c &c", which is presumed to be connected to the plan. The date is presumed from the date J. M. Hilhouse set up business in 1772, to the time the Duchess left England in 1773 on the death of the Duke of Kingston.
