The Sans-Pareil ("No-such") was a ship of the line project presented to Louis XV between 1757 and 1760. No actual ship of the French Navy bore the name, though the Royal Louis was built on the scheme.
On the other hand, the artillery techniques undertook no significant improvement, with the old smooth-bore pieces, and a practical range of about 500 to 600 metres.
A typical 108-gun ship of the time would be about 56 metres long at the waterline, 16,5 metres wide, 20 metres high (hull) and carry 2 990 m2 of sails.
The Sans-Pareil only existed as a 1/30th model which is now kept at the Musée de la Marine in Paris. It is very likely to offer only very minor differences to what the Royal-Louis was like when she was launched in Brest in 1759.
The figurehead featured a lion. The ornaments of the aft were simplified, integrating the overall lines and structure of the ship.1757}}
