Can't describe how cute she looks :D She would make a lovely entry-level ship rigged vessel in game. Great post LeBoiteux!

Aww, its a baby Renommee! :)

 

Indeed ! Same tumblehome.

L'Amarante's builder, J.-L. Ollivier, was Blaise Ollivier's son.

Blaise built the 8-pdr frigate Le Médée (1740) whose body plan was very similar to La Renommée (1744)...

It looks, from cursory research, as though la Renommée was designed and built by a different team, but using the Ollivier family's concepts and ideas.

I'm rather surprised that despite my assidiously keeping an eye out on this forum for such little ships that this thread slipped past me. A marvellous little ship sloop, the sort I'd happily sail around in in Naval Action. I would love to go trader hunting in it!
