It's the typical boat of Bahia, artisan-made. It is constructed of wood and can vary in size and type of use, such as a cargo or fishing boat, or still hold up to one hundred passengers. They face sea conditions that many modern boats do not face. Its original propulsion is by sail, but today they all count on diesel engines.
