The brig is a slim and maneuverable ship (the gross tonnage of a brig goes from 100 to 300 tons), small size, and equipped with two masts, of which the bow is reinforced with square sails. The word brig has an Italian origin, meaning part of a brigade; since in the 1400 and 1500 the brig at lateen sails was used frequently as a unit for warfare and piracy. The brig, however, was mainly used as cargo or escort, and it was widespread in the Mediterranean Sea and northern Europe.
