Description

Pinko is a Xebec, a typical sailing ship of the Mediterranean, being built in Dubrovnik shipyards from the 15th till the 19th century. Throughout this period the main construction remained unchanged and Xebec was an extremely slender and fast sailing ship with three masts and Latin sails. The manoeuvring abilities were extraordinary so she was often used as a war-ship, even by pirates, but she was nevertheless used as a fast merchant ship or fishing boat too. It was exactly this versatility of this ship that kept her in use for almost four centuries. Pinko is an authentic reconstruction of a merchant type Xebec of Dubrovnik from 1800. In difference to most boats in those waters, this ship had a fantastic characteristic of being able to change sails depending on the kind of wind blowing.
