  • A barquentine or schooner barque (alternatively "barkentine" or "schooner bark") is a sailing vesselwith three or more masts; with a square rigged foremast and fore-and-aft rigged main, mizzen and any other masts.
  • While a full-rigged ship is square-rigged on all three masts, and the barque is square-rigged except for the mizzen-mast, the barquentine extends the principle by making only the foremast square-rigged.¬†The advantages of a smaller crew, good performance before the wind and the ability to sail relatively close to the wind while carrying plenty of cargo made it a popular rig at the end of the nineteenth century.
