Holiday Cottage East Coast Scotland Dundee
HMS Discovery, commanded by Captain Vancouver on his great voyage to the Northwest Coast in 1791-95, was the sixth ship in the Royal Navy to bear the name, which dates from 1665. While under construction as a merchant ship in a Thames yard, she was purchased in November 1789 by the Admiralty, which was looking for a ship suitable "for surveying in Remote Parts." Launched and named in December, she was moved to Deptford Dockyard for outfitting, now berthed in Dundee.
