(p.115) 6 The Fiscal-Naval State
Military Entrepreneurs and the Spanish Contractor State in the Eighteenth Century

Rafael Torres Sánchez

Oxford University Press

With the aim of offering the most comprehensive overview of the types of military entrepreneurs in Spain in the eighteenth century, this and the following chapters switch attention to navy-supplying entrepreneurs. The title of ‘fiscal-naval state’ (in English in the original Spanish text) is meant to invite comparison with the British case. The boom of Spain’s war navy in that century was overseen by a specific administrative structure, the Navy Department, which determined relations with the entrepreneurs and the production of naval supplies. This chapter analyses the regional application of the three Spanish maritime departments, Ferrol, Cádiz, and Cartagena, plus Havana overseas, in terms of financing, policy, management, and purchase of naval resources.

Keywords:   state, entrepreneur, navy, naval supply, Navy Department, shipyard, America, eighteenth century
