French Navy Xebex

Newer Older

Today I'm presenting the latest addition to my French Navy, a Mediterranean Xebec.

Xebecs were used in the Mediterranean by French corsairs mainly for quick interception and getaway. The corsairs favored the xebec for its speed and maneuverability, and for its shallow draft which also aided in escaping larger vessels. These qualities were recognized by many of the European navies, and the vessel was quickly adopted into the Mediterranean squadrons as commerce-raiders and anti-piracy cruisers.

Credits: A lot of credits for this ship go to my good friend Captain Green Hair. This Xebec is based on his beautiful Telesell.
