The Prince de Neufchatel was a fast sailing United States schooner-rigged privateer, built in New York by Noah and Adam Brown in approximately 1812. She is a fine example of the peak of development of the armed schooner. Neufchatel operated in mainly European waters, damaging British shipping during the War of 1812. Noted for her speed, at one time she outran seventeen Men-of-war. So successful was she that in 1813, operating in the English channel, nine British prizes were taken in quick succession. The British finally captured her in December 1814.
