The First Fleet sailed from Portsmouth in England in May 1787 and comprised eleven ships: two naval vessels, three store ships and six transports. Charlotte was a First Fleet transport ship of 335 tons, built on the River Thames in 1784. She was a "heavy sailer" and had to be towed down the English Channel for the first few days of the voyage.

The Charlotte left Portsmouth on 13 May 1787 carrying 84 male and 24 female convicts and arrived at Port Jackson, Sydney, Australia, on 26 January 1788.
