Here is my comprehensive list of the French Ship-of-the-Lines. I will separate each vessel by “Rate.” There are many French vessels that share the same name, with that known I may also separate it by who was King at the time.


Rough Estimate of Rates for Ship-of-the-Lines: Note: Ship-of-the-Line Rates are varied. This is merely a rough estimate that was made in the 1800s. There are many more rates like Fifth and Sixth, but they are considered frigates at that point.

I am also posting this on the Real Designs discussion board. It is called French Ships-of-the-line.
And also I am posting this on the Never-Built Designs discussion board. It is called French Ships-of-the-line (Sadly Never Built).

Example of how the ships would look in this list:
  • Ship's Name [Which Rate is it?] Month & Year Introduced (as in laid out)

Planned / WIP / Finished (basically they are linked)

First and foremost, sorry for my few month delay on an actual post for these vessels. Other than that, I am happy with what I came up with for this first post. I hope you guys like it as much as I had!


Here is the French First Rate Ship-of-the-line:

The Royal Louis (of 1759)

The Royal Louis was a 116-gun ship-of-the-line of the Royal French Navy, designed in 1757 by a Frenchman by the name of Jacques-Luc Coulomb and constructed in 1757 to 1762 by Laurent Coulomb at Brest Dockyard. She was the fourth ship to bear the name, and the only ship of the Sans-Pareil (Will draw soon) design ever built.

Sadly this vessel never saw service and in 1771 was noted to have become very “deteriorated beyond repair.” Therefore, in 1773 she was broken up.

Edit: I fixed up some lines and corrected the date I originally had (May 1759) and replaced it with the date that the ship was completed (July 1762).


Thank you all for your patient wait as I took a long time pushing this vessel out. I have more to come soon.

Beautiful drawing!

But while here's the right place for workLISTS, the right place for WORK from such lists is rather Real Designs Forum:
viewforum.php?f=12

(unless it's an unbuilt project or own design, of course)

Ah! Okay, good to know. I will be sure to post others there too. Thanks a ton! And yes, spent months making sure it was correct, so I am happy the vessel came out beautiful! :D
