The Jupiter was an 80-gun Bucentaure-class 80-gun ship of the line of the French Navy, designed by Sané.

In 1836, she ferried Admiral de Markau from Brest to Fort de France to replace Admiral Halgan as governor in the Caribbean. In 1837, she ferried troops to Algeria. She took part in the naval parade of 6 September 1850 in Cherbourg, and in the Crimean war.

Struck in 1863, she was used as a barracks hulk in Rochefort from 1870.
