HMS Surprise

The finished drawing of the HMS Surprise.

The HMS Surprise is a modern tall ship, built in Canada as the Rose. She is based on HMS Rose, a 20 gun sixth-rate frigate built in 1757. She was used in the making of the film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, in which she portrayed the Royal Navy frigate Surprise. The ship has officially been re-registered as HMS Surprise in honor of her role in the film. In 2010, she portrayed HMS Providence in the Disney adventure film Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
