Named after a Swiss Canton, or district in Switzerland, and owned by a French born widow, Flory Charreton, PRINCE de NEUFCHATLE was built in New York City in 1813 at shipyard of Adam and Noah Brown, after a design by Christian Bergh. With a full set of sails, this schooner brig could set an amazing speed of 14 knots, then unheard of for a sailing ship. Out fitted in France, she quickly captered nine British merchanmen on the English Channel. She was later captered by the British when her rig was shot up and unable to use her to speed to escape. The British were impressed by her speed, but was unable to put into service for the fleet, as she was badly damaged leaving drydock. A copy was proposed, but never initiated when Englind came to peace in 1815.

Happy modeling   Crackers

Very cool! I didn't realize there was a 1/200th scale out there of this ship. I''ve been building the 1/64 PoB kit from Model Shipways for some years now and I'm actually hoping to finish it up sometime this year. Great looking kit and I would love to see some up close pictures if you have any.
