The most singular type of a vessel in the traditional Greek ship-building of the 20th century.The first construction of this type of vessel occurred on the Greek island of Syros. Although there are none built any more, we can still see the last of them sailing in the Aegean sea. The main characteristic was a small counter placed crosswise at the upper part of the cutwater, offering a connection point for the gunwales. It was a commercial transportation vessel 50-60 feet long and was commonly rigged as a gaff schooner (“Lover”) or “Bratchera” (two large square sails).
The specific model is rigged as “Gaff schooner".
