Sailing 54-gun battleship “Poltava” (a copy of a ship of the Peter the Great era), which took part in the Main Naval Parade, moored at the Angliyskaya Embankment in St. Petersburg. At present, the ship is preparing to move to its permanent base, where it will be towed with the improvement of hydrometeorological conditions. During the parade on July 25, the sailboat headed the parade line of static display ships on the Neva.

For reference:

“Poltava” – 54-gun battleship of the 4th rank, launched on June 15 (26), 1712 from the slipway of the St. Petersburg Admiralty. Peter I personally took part in its construction. The ship got its name in honor of the victory won by the Russian army over the Swedes in the Battle of Poltava.

Its replica was built at the historic Poltava shipyard in Saint Petersburg, which is the only enterprise in the Russian Federation associated with the historical and modern sailing fleet. This ship began to be built in 2013.
