I believe Bergantin is an alternate spelling for Brigantine, which this vessel is.

Hello,

I have a question.
I do not see a reference for the term Bergantin in this ship.
Is it about one or a barque longue?
We would like to reconstruct the ship for model making. And we wonder if the term Bergantin is used in the souces, but find nothing.

And I would like to thank everyone for the great work that has been done for this database so far.

Best regards

Joerg
