Description

Brick Négrier Ship Model

Origin: France

Year: 1830

In spite of the official abolition of slavery by the Vienne treaty of 1815, the trade of Negroes continued until the middle of the 19th Century into the French colonies.

The slave dealers had to imagine ships capable of escaping from the watch-ships.

The Ouragan was one of these ships, which according to its thin shape and its jab-joint hull, could be both swift and easy to handle, and became one of the swiftest carrier of slaves in the 19th century.

A slave Brick Négrier or slaver is a ship or vessel that for part of its time, transported black slaves (known as “negroes”) for trade.

However, it was a matter of deporting Africans to the North or South American coasts. The ships and their crews, the cargoes and the capital came from all over the continent.

Nevertheless, This transport of slaves was part of the triangular trade. Therefore, no such thing as a slave ship, nor is there a specific model of ship.

All the above, this craft was not designed for transport, or even for the human trade. Indeed, Very few ships were specially built for the trade.
