One of the ships used for the film was "The Grand Turk" which is a working replica of a 1790s man-o-war that makes yearly trips throughout Europe and winters in the city of Whitby, England. It was specially built for 'Hornblower', and painted black and buff on one side, and black and red on the other, so that it could double as a British or French ship, depending on the angle it was filmed from.

Inside the Grand Turk is a shrine to the Hornblower series with lots of references to the TV show. Also on display on the lower deck are the nameplates for the "Indefatigable", the ship it portrayed in the first four programs.
