This fast cruiser was used to connect England with the North American colonies and was generally referred to as one of the "runner class". She was built at the Deptford dockyard on the river Thames in 1700. She was later rebuilt and renamed the Caroline. When she was disposed of in the mid 18th century, the design was copied and used as a basis for the yacht Royal Caroline which was very similar in overall appearance.
The PEREGRINE GALLEY was built 1700 in the Royal Navy Dockyard at Sheerness in the Thames estuary. In 1716 she was refitted as a royal yacht in Deptford and was renamed Carolina. King Georg I made six voyages on her 1714 - 1726 to visit his beloved duchy Hanover.
