If the will meant the yacht, it would have said "her Majestie's yacht Monmouth", so it meant the 3rd-rate. The Monmouth's muster books are in ADM 39, volumes 1979-1987 covering 1667-1686. Sir Rich. Haddock's genealogy in the Camden Miscellany Vol. 8, don't show a Thomas.

At the National Archives in Kew, ADM 36 series

Where can the ship muster books be found?

To find out which ship you would need to look at the ships muster books, if they still exist.
As to being a relative, who knows.

How may I determine whether Thomas Haddock, mariner aboard "her Majestie's ship Monmouth", who wrote his will on 6 Feb 1689-90 was on this ship or the other Monmouth, which was a yacht? His wife's name was Alice, no additional relatives mentioned.
Also, was Thomas related to Admiral Sir Richard Haddock?
