Seen mostly in Scotland around the 17th  Century, The Gabbart was s small Single Masted vessel. Displacing around 30 tons, they ranged from 60 to 75 feet long. Gabbarts were a primary source of transportation for coal and fish commodities along the Scottish Coast. Gabbarts were innovative in that later varities features a “folding” Main Mast – that allowed the ship to pass under a fixed bridge when necessary. Gabbarts were also used as surveillance ships and Coastal “Alert Vessels” during conflicts.
