The L’Ocean was a 118-gun first rate ship of the line in the french navy and was lead ship of the Ocean class of first rates. She was ordered as États de Bourgogne and was launched at Brest in 1790. Like many French ships of the line during the Revolutionary period, she was renamed several times, becoming Côte d'Or in January 1793, Montagne in October 1793, Peuple on 17 May 1795, and a matter of weeks later again renamed, to Océan. She served until 1855.As the largest ship of the line in the Brest fleet, the ship spent much of her early career as the fleet flagship. As Montagne, the ship was the flagship of Rear-Admiral Villaret-Joyeuse in the Combat de Prairial (known in English literature as the Glorious First of June) in 1794. She was badly damaged by HMS Royal Sovereign, losing 313 men and receiving 233 round shots in her hull. On 17 May 1795, she was renamed Peuple; a month later, on the 23rd of June she fought in the Battle of Groix as Villaret's flagship. Returning to Lorient three days later, she was renamed to Océan. She was refitted in Brest in 1797 and in 1801, she once again served as Villaret's flagship, ferrying troops of Leclerc's expedition to Saint-Domingue. Océan was Allemand's flagship at the Battle of the Basque Roads. And finally she was decommissioned on 2 August 1850, and used as a floating artillery battery from May 1851 until being broken up in 1856.
