Navy flagship "Goto Predestinatsia"

Goto Predestinatsia (God's Predestination, literally The Providence of God, Russian: Гото Предестинация) was the Russian 18th century navy flagship, 58-gun three-masted battleship. She was commissioned on April 27, 1700 on the Voronezh Admiralty wharf, and was in service until 1711 as part of the Azov flotilla. After the unsuccessful Prut campaign and the loss of Azov the Goto Predestinatsia was sold to the Ottoman Empire. She was the first Russian ship of the line and the first ship of this rate built in Russia without the help of foreign experts.
