She took part in the Croisière du Grand Hiver of winter 1794-1795, but sustained damage when a leak opened in her hull in the night of the 30 to 31 December, and she had to return to Saint Malo. From 1798, she was in a state of disrepair and needed to be refitted or demolished. She was eventually condemned in 1802 and broken up in 1803.
