Tall Ships HMS Bounty 1787 Model for your nautical home or office. Maritime exploration ship commanded by Captain Bligh.
The name of Bounty , frigate of the British Navy, is indissolubly tied to her captain's Bligh and to the vicissitudes which caused the crew to mutiny. The ship set out for Spithead in december 1787, final destination Tahiti.On the return voyage, owing to the strict discipline imposed by the captain, which clashed with the idle stay in tahiti, a certain discontent began to spread through the crew and it soon turned into a mutiny. Christian Flecher, the boatswain, took command of the ship and forced Bligh to embark on a life-boat with 18 still faihful men. After a dangerous navigation for more than 4,000 miles, Bligh reached the isle of Timor and afterwards England. The Bounty went back to tahiti where part of the crew landed. She then sailed for the Pitcairn Isle where Fletcher and the remaining men settled. Only 20 years later the group landed in tahiti was captured and judged by the English Court-martial. Three seamen were condemned while the others were acquitted.
