The galeas ship type
The galeas is a small type of trade ship, which was common in the Baltic Sea and North Sea from the 17th to the early 20th centuries. The galeas was developed from the Dutch galliot, which was rigged in a similar way, but was equipped with a rounded stern. This ship carries the flag of the Baltic seaport Stettin.
