Historical Information

This famous vessel with lateen sails derived from the Xebec used by the Barbary pirates. Armed with 14 cannons and 6 swivel guns for action at close range, the Xebec was also used for coastal defense by Spanish Navy against Algerian pirates. Oars made traveling possible even in case of calm winds.
