BROADER CONCEPT
SCOPE NOTE
  • A seagoing vessel designed or operated as a light sailing warship, and deployed semi-officially, with sovereign state sanction ('letters of marque') rather than as a part of of formally-constituted navy. Such vessels were regularly deployed in the Early Modern period, for independent commerce raiding rather than to fight in fleet actions.
