French ship Indivisible (1799)
Capture of HMS Swiftsure by Indivisible and Dix-Août
|Renamed:||Alexandre on 5 February 1803|
In December, under captain Garreau, she was part of Leissègues' squadron bound for San Domingo. She took part in the subsequent Battle of San Domingo, where she was badly damaged by the fire of HMS Superb, which left her adrift, her rigging shot off and her rudder destroyed. She was taken by HMS Spencer.
From 1808, she was used as a gunpowder hulk in Plymouth, and was eventually broken up in 1822.
