The baghla was a type of ocean-going trade ships, built at the Arab coastline. The were used on voyages on the Indian Ocean until early 20th century. Very few drawings of them exist, as Arab shipwrights followed traditional practices handed down through generations. "Baghla" means mule in Arabic, implying trade as the main use of the ships. The ships used to be about 30 m long, mostly had two masts with lateen sails and a crew of about 30.
In the Souvenirs de la Marine by Amiral Paris there is a drawing of an Omani baghla of 1838 (Amiral Paris, Souvenirs de la marine. Collections de plans ou dessins de navires et de bateaux anciens ou modernes, 1871, Vol. 2, plate 125).
