Bras D'or

The name of Canada's most famous hydrofoil that served from 1968 to 1971. During sea trials in 1969, HMCS Bras D'or exceeded 63 knots making her the fastest unarmed warship in the world. Despite her speed, the program was cancelled and she was laid up in Dartmouth for decades. She is now on display at the Muse Maritime du Quebec at L'Islet-sur-Mer, Quebec.
