The galeas ship type
The galeas is a small type of trade ship, used mainly in the Baltic Sea and North Sea. It was popular from the 17th to the early 20th centuries. The galeas was derived from the Dutch galiot. A galiot had a similar rig, but a rounded stern.
The Baltic Sea trader KARL UND MARIE shows the type of rigging used by the end of the 19th century. She was built in 1884 and operated by a trader from Barth. The galeas had a crew of three. The skipper lived in the deckhouse while the two men slept below deck in the bow.
