Built in 1783 as a cargo ship, in 1787 she was purchased by the Royal Navy for the transporting of breadfruit from Tahiti to the Caribbean. The breadfruit was supposed to serve as cheap food for the slaves that worked in the sugar cane plantations. She set sail from England on 23rd December 1787, under the captaincy of Captain William Bligh. After a 10 month voyage she finally arrived in Tahiti, later than planned. As a result of this delay they then had to wait 5 months before setting sail for the Caribbean, her final destination. During this voyage there was a mutiny on board the ship, led by Fletcher Christian. The mutineers then ordered Captain Bligh, along with 18 loyal seamen, aboard the ship’s launch and cast them adrift. Bligh managed the heroic exploit of reaching the island of Timor, after 41 days at sea.
