The Concorde was a Nymphe class 40-gun frigate of the French Navy.

On 27 May 1793, Concorde captured the 24-gun HMS Hyæna [1]. She took part in the Expédition d'Irlande, and on 12 October 1798, in aftermath of the Battle of Tory Island.

In 1800, she sailed to South Atlantic to act as a commerce raider. At the Action of 4 August 1800, she was captured by HMS Belliqueux [2] after an hour and a half-long pursuit.
