Object details:

Object ID PAH0762
Description The Hibernia, shown starboard-bow, sailing on tempestuous waters and rolling waves. In the distance, on her right, is a three-masted ship (depicted in port-bow view) near a mountainous coast. An indistinguishable steamer features in the left background. The Hibernia was St Vincent’s flagship in 1806-07 and Sir W. Sidney Smith’s and Sir Charles Cotton’s flagship during 1807 to 1808. She was the flagship of the Admiral Superintendents at Malta Dockyard for forty years, before being sold at Malta in 1902. This hand-coloured presumably belongs to the last period. (Notes on Hibernia from K.V. Burns, ‘Plymouth’s ships of War’)
