Default Nuestra Señora de la Santísima Trinidad (1769)

I don't know if this ship ahs been featured or not but the Nuestra Señora de la Santísima Trinidad holds a place in history as the most heavily armed ship during the Napoleonic Era.

Class and type: 140-gun first-rate
Displacement: 4,950 tons
Length: 61.3 m (201 ft)*
Beam: 16.2 m (53 ft)
Draught: 8.02 m (26.3 ft)
Troops: ≈140
Complement: 950-1,050
Armament: 112 guns as built:
lower deck 30 × 36 pdrs,
middle deck 32 × 24 pdrs,
upper deck 32 × 12 pdrs,
quarterdeck and forecastle 18 × 8 pdrs.

She was known to be the only ship of the line in history to have 4 complete gundecks.

She was built in Havana, Cuba and was designed to carry 112-guns.
She nearly escaped capture during the Battle of Cape St Vincent where she struck but was never taken and escaped. She finally met her end during the Battle of Trafalgar where she was captured and foundered in a storm on the way to England after the Battle

Certainly a substantial ship with a deep draft with a copper clad hull ?
