In 18th century, France made build xebecs in Toulon. It was to fight privateers and pirates coming from North Africa who attacked the numerous ships of the traders going to the famous fair of Beaucaire.

Four first ones, built in 1750-51 supervised by Majorcan builders, had Lateen sails on their three masts, canons of 6 and 8 pounds, and crews from 150 to 220 men.

Four following ones, built in 1762, had a polacre, a Lateen sail on the foremast and squared veils on the other masts for a total surface of 502 m².

The polacre is this sail, looking like an outer jib, placed on the halyard going from the jib-boom (berthelot) to the top of the foremast. They carried 20 canons of 8 pounds and a crew of 140 men. The same xebec without polacre is a “Mistic”.


The original plans of this model were drawn by the Vice-Admiral Paris, the conservative of the Musée Naval du Louvre (from 1871 to 1893) , according to the model of the xebec-polacre Le Singe (the Ape), the one who had been built in 1762 and condemned in 1779.


The model an absolute novelty in the field of boxed models.

Taken from drawings of an original example conserved in a famous French museum, reproduces an unusual Mediterranean sailing ship of the mid-18th century, armed with 18 guns.

The Polish-style xebec was a modification of the classic style known as lateen because the three masts carried triangular sails.
