The Grand Turk is a replica of a three-masted sixth-rate frigate, well known for depicting HMS Indefatigable in the TV series Hornblower, although the historical Indefatigable was a much bigger ship. She has also served in the same TV series as the French ship Papillon. She was built primarily as an action vehicle for the international TV and film industry. Nowadays the tall ship is used mainly in sailing events, for corporate or private charter, and for receptions in its spacious saloon or on its deck.
