COMMERCE DE MARSEILLES (20) Taken by Lord HOOD at Toulon in December 1783.
Broken up in 1802.

  • Lieut. BIGGS, 05/1795. Lieut. H. H. SEARLE, 02/1799. Prison Ship.
    In 1802 she was found to be too hogged to be worth the enormous expense of repair. At the beginning of August she was alongside the North Jetty Head for her upper deck and upper works to be ripped off before going into dock to be broken up. On the 25th. MARS was taken out of dock to make way for the COMMERCE and received some damage in the process. (It was October before repairs to her were completed.) Large quantities of beams, knees and other timber were saved from the COMMERCE to be used in the repair of other ships in the docks.
