The image shows three traditional boats of Adriatic Sea (Italy) from left to right


Built: 1963 in Bellaria Length: 9.46 m Beam: 2.80 m

The Battana was a simple, cheap and very versatile boat especially as regards the coast fishing.It was equipped with just a mast with a lugsail and a jib (polaccone).The bottom was flat and all the other structure’s pieces were straight, so that they could be easily found in every sawmill. These boats were painted with bright colors and two stars instead of eyes on the bow. These boats fell slamming in the wave hollow and probably this is the reason why they were called battane (slamming boats).

Trabaccolo da pesca (Barchèt) (fishing lugger)

Built: 1925 in Cattolica Lenght: 13.06 m Beam: 3.70 m

Trabaccolo is a boat typical of the Romagna coast and charaterized by a wide “duck breast-shaped” bow with eyes in relief. It was a stable boat suitable for trawling with a length ranging from 12 to 16 m. In some periods of the year these boats were used to alternate fishing and transportation. They were equipped with a mast and a foremast with lugsails decorated with pictures and symbols.


Built: 1930 in Chioggia Length: 10.60 m Beam: 2.90 m

Flat–bottomed boat, coming from Chioggia, used by expert fishermen of the High-Middle Adriatic. It was chatacterized by excellent sailing features and was especially used for trawling. Its hulls were always black and very decorated at the bow. It was equipped with a mast and a smaller foremast leant forward that were rigged with lugsails.
