HISTORICAL VESSELS

15 m CORBITA

The CORBITA was a merchant ship for the Roman Empire.

"The merchant ships of the Greeks and Romans were mighty vessels, too. The full-bodied Roman corbita, for example, could hold up to 400 tons of cargo, such as spices, gems, silk, and animals. The construction of these boats was based on a stout hull with planking secured by mortice and tenon. Some of these ships made long trading voyages, sailing even as far as India. To make them easier to steer, corbitas set a foresail called an "artemon." It flew from a forward-leaning mast that was the forerunner of the long bowsprits carried by the great clipper ships of the 19th century."

19 m BIREME

A BIREME is a ship probably invented by the Phoenicians whose best known use was as an ancient Greek warship that was 80 feet (24 metres) long with a maximum beam length of around 10 feet (3 metres). It was modified from penteconters (a ship that had only one set of oars on each side) but the bireme had two sets of oars on each side, hence the name. It also had a large square sail. This ship was also used by the Romans frequently and were used during the second of Caesar's invasions of Britain. It evolved into the trireme. Often there would be a group of marines and a unit commandant (the commandant was given a tent on the open deck).

We first find it recorded in ancient history on 8th century Assyrian reliefs.

The name bireme comes from "bi-" meaning two and "-reme" meaning oar.
