'Sibylle' Venus class French Frigate (With Plans)


Recommended Posts

Sibylle


1792


 


Sibylle was a 38-gun Hébé class frigate of the French Navy. She was launched in 1791 at the dockyards in Toulon and placed in service in 1792. After the 50-gun Fourth Rate HMS Romney captured her in 1794, the British took her into service as HMS Sybille. She served in the Royal Navy until disposed of in 1833. While in British service Sybille participated in three notable single ship actions, in each case capturing a French vessel. On anti-slavery duties off West Africa from July 1827 to June 1830, Sybille captured numerous slavers and freed some 3,500 slaves. She was finally sold in 1833 in Portsmouth.

Note. La Sybelle is not the Hébé class, but the type plan of Sané. The frigate l'Hébé is the same type plan. If we define a class, we must say "Venus class." Because this the first frigate than followed the type plan is la Vénus. But it is better to say "type plan of Sané".
