This model is an example of an armed pinnace boat used by the British Navy. Pinnace boats were used by multiple navies throughout the 19th century and were also carried by merchant ships. This particular launch was armed with naval guns of different types; in the bow section a cannon was installed while in the stern two more small cannons were placed to be aimed by hand.
Due to their manoeuvrability, they were surprisingly effective in attacks on vessels in difficulty and were deployed in great numbers to protect main fleets.
