The schooner Albatross was constructed in the Baltimore shipyards in 1840. It had a gundeck, as it was built to defend the North American Coast. Its slim hull and continuous deck were copied from the French frigates that often sailed into the American ports during the War of Independence.
The schooner made its final appearance in the first half of the 18th century in what is now known as the United States and soon became common on both the east and west coasts. Its smooth, narrow hull made for good sailing. It was used mainly for commercial traffic and deep sea fishing.
