About the Vessel
Cocca Veneta Historical Ship is a typical 15th century merchant vessel that used to sail on the Mediterranean trade routes. Most of these ships had a prow shaped just like a bird’s beak. She was weighted around 200 tonnes.
The word 'cocca' was commonly used for medium tonnage ships, mainly merchant vessels, during 15th century in Mediterranean Sea. Also, the term refers to the size of the mercantile hull of that time. It was a lightweight yet strong vessel that easily managed to conquer even the fiercest storms in the Mediterranean Sea.
The replica of the Cocca Veneta Historical Ship is made after a deep naval study, which was published in France during the end of 19th century. This study includes the miniatures as well as paintings made in the 15th century.
