SLOOP OF WAR   H.M.S. "CORSARIO"

 

History

 

Replica of a Bermudian sloop of war, of the same type and size of the famous Belizian Baysloops often used by the Pirates of the Caribbean for being a swift, shallow drafted vessel ideally suited for their infamous trade. Captain Jean Laffite is known to have owned and used in the waters around Mujeres a small single-masted sailing ship just like the "Corsario".

She was built in Chicxulub, Yucatan, by experienced mexican shipwrights, carefully researched and detailed to make her look very much like the vessels used during the end of the XVIII th. and beginning of the XIX th. century. We integrated into the design, the necessary modern life and safety commodities, without loosing her fine waterlines, that makes her a fast and comfortable vessel to sail with.
