Shipbuilding industries developed to produce these much needed, and quite complicated vessels. http://joyfulmolly.wordpress.com/2007/10/27/resource-updated-molly-joyfuls-list-of-naval-and-historic-resources/
HMS Royal Charles was a 100-gun first-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, designed and built by Sir Anthony Deane at Portsmouth Dockyard, where she was launched and completed by his successor as Master Shipwright, Daniel Furzer, in March 1673. She was one of only three Royal Navy ships to be equipped with the Rupertinoe naval gun. She was rebuilt at Woolwich Dockyard between 1691 and 1693, and renamed HMS Queen.
"Montebello" 118 guns. French first-rate ship of the line, laid down at Toulon in 1810, launched 1812. One of the 16 "Ocean" class ships of the line, this was the most powerful class of warship built by any power in the Napoleonic period. 10 were completed during the wars. Good, powerful gun platforms and, for first-rates, a good turn of speed (10 knots). Extremely expensive ships. This shows Montebello about 1850, just before she was fitted with experimental steam propulsion. Scrapped 1889.
