Description
Small to medium-sized vessels, with plain head and square stern, originally developed as lateen-rigged coastal fishing vessels in Medieval Portugal, but eventually used as exploratory vessels in Iberian voyages to the New World in the late 15th and early 16th centuries; vessels of exploration were often square-rigged for more efficient ocean-going travel.
