Did you know?
A schooner is a type of sailing ship with two or more masts rigged in a variety of ways. There are a wide range of uses for the schooner, which was historically employed in a number of industries. Modern schooners generally take the form of charter boats or replicas of historic ships, since they have been replaced in commercial use by engine powered ships. It is often possible to see at least one schooner in a large harbor, especially along the East Coast of the United States, or at a festival of tall ships.
Several things distinguish a schooner. In order to qualify as a schooner, the ship must have two or more masts, with some schooners historically having as many as six.
The front or fore mast is shorter than the rear or aft mast, and the main sail is attached to the aft mast, rather than the fore mast, as is common in some rigging plans. The sails are also fore and aft rigged, meaning that they run along the line of the keel.
Such vessels were first used by the Dutch in the 16th or 17th century, they were popular in trades that required speed and windward ability, such as slaving, privateering, and blockade running. They were also traditional fishing boats, used for offshore fishing. They were favored as pilot vessels.
