FC Slave Ship

An 18th century slave ship

Slave ships were sea-faring vessels whose principal mission was the transportation of imprisoned human slaves. During the 17th and 18th century, slave ships played a significant part in the triangular trade between Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.[1] During this time, the British Royal African Company was one of the largest commissioners of slave ships globally.[2]

Very few vessels ever served exclusively as slave ships, several being former or future naval vessels. Such ships included the frigate Concord,[2] and the Experto Crede, a former merchant brig.[1]
