24-gun HMS Surprise

The HMS Surprise, a replica 18th century Royal Navy frigate, has been a part of the
San Diego Maritime Museum fleet since 2004. Originally christened Rose, she’s best known for her appearance in the film, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. The filmmakers painstaking desire to recreate a 24-gun Lord Nelson
era warship resulted in a fully functioning vessel unmatched in its authenticity and attention to detail. When her massive sail plan appears on the horizon, you can almost hear her crew being beat to quarters as she bears down on her next quarry.
Surprise was recently cast for an upcoming feature film, but details are few as her crew were sworn to secrecy.
