The Cruiser class were brig rigged sloops and were the most numerous class of warships built in the age of sail.

The Cruiser class played a very active roll in the Napoleonic wars, from escort duty, reconnaissance and enemy convoy and inshore raiding.

As originally built, Cruiser had eighteen 6 pounder carriage guns but the ordnance was soon to change to sixteen 32 pounder carronades and two 6 pounder carriage guns.
