The site currently says that the Salvador del Mundo was taken by the (French) Mucius, 74. That must be a mistake fot the British Orion, 74 (as the French Mucius was previously named Orion).

The Salvador del Mundo was built at El Ferrol, not Havana. It was the second ship of the Santa Ana class, not the Meregildos class. The first 3 were built in El Ferrol: Snata Ana 1784, Salvodor del Mundo 1787, Reina Luisa 1791. Trafalgar And The Spanish Navy by John D Harbron
