Galley

A traditional galley.

galley was a type of ship that is propelled mainly by rowing. The galley was characterized by its long, slender hull, shallow draft and low freeboard (clearance between sea and railing). Virtually all types of galleys had sails that could be used in favorable winds, but human strength was always the primary method of propulsion. This allowed galleys to navigate independently of winds and currents. The galley originated among the seafaring civilizations around the Mediterranean Sea in the late second millennium BC and remained in use in various forms until the early 18th century in warfare, trade and piracy.

The Pirate Lord Ammand commanded a fleet of galleys,[1] and his ships were among those assembled against Cutler Beckett's armada.
