French ship Borda
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Six ships of the French Navy have borne the name Borda in honour of Jean-Charles de Borda. From 1839 it has been a tradition that the main schoolship of the École navale, a repurposed capital ship, be renamed Borda in this role.
- A 10-gun brig (1834–1849))
- Commerce de Paris (1807–1884), a 110-gun ship of the line, lead ship of her class, was renamed Borda in 1839 and used as a schoolship until 1863. 
- Valmy (1849–1891), a 120-gun ship of the line, was renamed Borda in 1864 and used as a schoolship from that point on, replacing the ex-Commerce de Paris in that role. 
- Intrépide (1864–1889), a 90-gun Algésiras-class steam ship of the line, was renamed Borda in 1890 and used as a schoolship, replacing the ex-Valmy in that role. 
- Duguay-Trouin (1873-1899), an ironclad cruiser, renamed Borda in Octobre 1913. She was the last in that tradition of school ships. 
- The hydrographic ship Borda (A792), presently in service
