The Cutter Lady Nelson is modelled on a typical British cutter of the late eighteenth, early nineteenth century.
The cutter is a native British design and was developed originally by the smugglers of Folkestone and surrounding areas. I did not take long for the Navy to appreciate the merits of the cutters design and were employed in the Navy from the middle of the eighteenth century to counter the smugglers.
The cutter was designed for speed, adopting an unusually large spread of sail for the size of vessel, deploying both fore and aft and square sails on a single mast. Cutters excelled at patrol and despatch duties due to their speed; however they were not suitable for close inshore work due to their deep draught.
