The Bravoure ("Bravery") was a 40-gun Cocarde class frigate of the French Navy.

She was launched in November 1795 in Saint Servan. She took part in the Expédition d'Irlande, and later served in Ganteaume's squadron. On 28 January 1801, she fought an indecisive battle against HMS Concorde. In June of the same year, under commander Dordelin, she ferried artillery pieces from Toulon to Elba with Succès; on the way back, she encountered HMS Concorde again, but this time accompanied by two other frigates. She beached herself to avoid capture and became a total loss.[citation needed]
