The Chebec was one of the fastest ships of its era. The Chebec was a typical ship with roots in North African countries. It was the typical format for ships frequenting the ports of Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli. The Chebec was armed with 24 cannons. This particular ship model is based on the French Chebec design of the ship 'Le Requin'.
The French and Spanish both copied the North African ship design for its speed. Le Requin was one of eight Xebecs built in France between 1750 and 1762. Le Requin was built by Joseph Caubet, a native of Majorca, and the build lasted eight months. The amazing aerodynamic profile of this ship speaks for its speed capabilities. Chebecs were used in the Mediterranean by French corsairs mainly for quick interception and getaway.
"My medium size Chebec is received in good order and without any damage. I was very impressed with the box you made. Took me an hour just to open it carefully. The ship is beautiful and I'm completely satisfied. If you speak with the maker please thank him/her from me and give my compliments on the craftsmanship.”
