French Navy Xebec
Today I'm presenting the latest addition to my French Navy, a Mediterranean Xebec.Xebecs were used in the Mediterranean by French corsairs mainly for quick interception and getaway. The corsairs favored the xebec for its speed and maneuverability, and for its shallow draft which also aided in escaping larger vessels. These qualities were recognized by many of the European navies, and the vessel was quickly adopted into the Mediterranean squadrons as commerce-raiders and anti-piracy cruisers. Credits: A lot of credits for this ship go to my good friend Captain Green Hair. This Xebec is based on his beautiful Telesell.

Partly because of this posting, I find that you seem to be an expert at building historically accurate ships and I think that you would be a true source of inspiration and a valuable giver of advice to future shipbuilders, so I have taken the liberty to invite you to my new group “Ship Builders guide”.

Wonderfull, You´ve made excellent use of the LEGO hull parts to nail the Xebec look. But What really makes this ship is those sails.

Exceptional work, I would love to have your keen eye for ships and architecture! I was wondering if you could help me with my own frigate, I couldnt get decent parts together if I tried. Awesome work, keep it up!

Absolutely amazing work here. Beautiful shapes and outstandingly elegant. Im not sure if those sails and rigging are LEGO or not, but who cares - it's all just fabric anyway. And using those technic pieces for pulleys - brilliant.

I love the cleanness of this build, from your hull technique to the custom sails. Great Job... I would really like to see some oars on this ship too because if I'm not correct, they used oars for propulsion as well.

Beauty. I really like the rigging -gives a very real feel to this vessel. Hull shape is nice, flowing. Color scheme seems right, as well. Any plans for a Trireme? -Huss Q.

Love it!!! Nice job on the sail and overall shape. If I had the pieces I would definitely do something like this. Great MOC, check out some of my models if you have the time.
