The schooner LA JACINTHE

The topsail schooner LA JACINTHE was one of a class of eleven schooners built for the French Navy to the draughts of the shipwright, J. F. Delamoriniere. Built in 1823, she was designed for service in the colonies and for protecting merchant shipping.

 

By the French Service Historique de la Défense a detailed plan was published of the schooner LA MUTINE (the same type as LA JONCILLE and LA JACINTHE), that was printed as part of the Atlas du Génie Maritime. The plan is available for download. The plan shows the schooner carrying two 12-pounder carronades, gives hull lines and lateral view, deck plans and sail plan. It was drawn in 1825.
