The 6th rate HMS Ontario was built in 1779 at the Carleton Island Dockyard, the only territory to change hands to the United States in the War of 1812. She had a short career as the largest British vessel on Lake Ontario. Ontario went down to the bottom of Lake Ontario during a violent storm on October 31 1780 with the loss of all hands. Her wreck has been found surprisingly well preserved due to laying at depth in very cold fresh water at the bottom of Lake Ontario.
Faithfully reconstructed by The Art of Age of Sail from original Admiralty drawings and her wreck site. Expertly designed and created by MarisStella Ltd. at a scale of 1:48 (32in/81cm).
