In French Boutre, in Arabic Markab, (gharab in the Persian gulf or lashab) all were lateen rigged.

This vessel was developed during the 13th/19th centuries, mainly as an ocean going cargo vessel often used for piracy.
If you are thinking “Sinbad the Sailor” you are on the right track, more on that in further reading.

Originally our interest was sparked and re kindled by “There are 4 paintings that we would like to commission you to paint in total, 3 of these are for the His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said’s yacht”.

You could commission a similar painting.

Our painting is very much a sailor’s painting.
It shows a (relatively) large Baglah, Arab dhow sailing at full power in her natural environment, the open ocean, on a splendid day for sailing.

She is revelling in a strong breeze and with a heavy swell, her crew have wisely dropped her mizzen sail.

The Baglah would already be up to full speed and the thrust of the mizzen in a heavy swell would only endanger her by risking a broach.
