The Utile was a 56-gun Bordelois-class ship of the line of the French Navy. She was funded by a don des vaisseaux donation from the States of Flander, and built by engineer Léon Guignace on a design by Antoine Groignard. Completed too late to serve in the Seven Years' War, she served in the Mediterranean before becoming a julk in Rochefort.
From 1772, she was reduced to a hulk in Rochfort and used as a masting machine. She was eventually broken up around 1793.
