The Bordelois class was a type of 56-gun ship of the line, designed by Antoine Groignard. The ships were funded by don des vaisseaux donations and rushed into production for the Seven Years' War, but were completed too late to take part in the conflict. Flamand would later have a distinguished career during the War of American Independence.
