A schooner is a sailing vessel with fore-and-aft sails on two or more masts. The most common type has two masts, the foremast being shorter than the main. The first detailed definition of a schooner, describing the vessel as two-masted vessel with fore and aft gaff-rigged sails, appeared in 1769 in William Falconer’s, Universal Dictionary of the Marine (1780). A popular legend holds that the first schooner was built by Andrew Robinson and launched in Gloucester, Massachusetts, but schooners had previously been built and used by the Dutch. The identity of this vessel is unknown but closely resembles several American schooners identified as being in existence in the late 1960’s or early 70’s when these lithographs were made.
