Set sail for adventure with Le Renard, a wooden model of the cutter launched in Saint Malo in 1812 by the famous privateer Robert Surcouf. His main objective was naturally that of attacking and catching enemy cargo and commerce ships fromFrance. The actions and the legacy towards the city of Saint Malo make the Renard a symbol of the strong French naval identity.

Le Renard was the last ship armed by the famous Robert Surcouf. In September 1813 he accomplished his greatest feat by defeating the English schooner HMS Alphea in battle. Thus making the city of Saint Malo a refuge for the families of the greatest corsairs in the world. In 1991, a replica of the original Renard was launched which still continues with pride on the waters to the delight of its visitors.
