HMS Boyne was a 98-gun second rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched on 3 July 1810 at Portsmouth.[1]

On 12 February 1814 she took part with HMS Caledonia in a hot action against the French line-of-battle ship Romulus off Toulon; the French 74 managed to escape to Toulon by sailing close to the coast to avoid being surrounded.

In 1834 she was renamed HMS Excellent and became a training ship. Excellent was broken up in 1861.[1]
