MV 55

American Schooner
(Sc. 1:45 L. 428 mm. H. 500 mm.)

In 1818 the Alert was placed into privateer service as well as action against smugglers along the American coast. The sleek hull lines and sails were designed for speed and agility on the high seas while its powerful swivel carronade gave the ship the ability to target its foes without maneuvering.
