“L’OURAGAN” (1830)

Slave brick

Ouragan (Hurricane) was a fine and fast ship of the beginning of the XIXth century. Draft of the slaves having been abolished in Europe in 1815, but the traffic remaining in fact considerable towards the USA and Brazil until 1860, these ships had to be faster and better designed than those of the military forces to escape them. Their qualities of navigation opened fortunately other uses to them.
