HISTORY

The idea for La Recouvrance was originally conceived in 1990.
She was modeled on the plans for the Iris, which was designed by the French naval engineer Hubert in 1817. Originally, there had been five vessels built from the Iris design, and these boats were employed in the early nineteenth century as courier vessels for the Navy. Eventually, their role was expanded to include surveillance and protection of merchant shipping off the African and West Indian coasts.
The proposal for a replica vessel was taken up by several public and private interests in Brest, who formed the association Goelette la Recouvrance (Schooner Recouvrance) to oversee the project. Construction on the ship began in 1991, and employed both volunteer and paid labor. The partially completed Recouvrance was launched at the Brest '92 maritime festival, and her rig was completed a year later.
In 1996, management of the vessel was transferred to SOPAB Brest.

Now, La Recouvrance sails regularly from Brest, offering day sails for up to 25 passengers and overnight sails for up to 12. She occasionally attends maritime festivals, and has visited many European nations.
