France II was built in 1911 in Bordeaux, to the plans of chief designer Gustave Leverne (1861–1940). She had the largest cargo capacity of any sailing ship ever built.
In 1922 she went aground on the on the Teremba reef (Urai bay) northwest of the Ouano reef, Because of fallen cargo rates her owner refused to pay for a tugboat to tow her free, and she was abandoned. American bombers bombed the wreckage for target practice in 1944.
