In sailing, a brigantine is a two-masted vessel with foremast fully square rigged and her mainmast rigged with both a fore-and-aft mainsail (a gaff sail) and a square topsail, and possibly a topgallant sail.By the 17th century the term was adapted by Atlantic maritime nations. The vessel had no lateen sails but was instead square-rigged on the foremast and had a gaff-rigged mainsail with square rig above it on the mainmast.The main mast of a brigantine is the aft one.
By the first half of the 18th century the word had evolved to refer not to a ship type name, but rather to a particular type of rigging: a two-masted vessel with her foremast fully square-rigged and her mainmast rigged with both a fore-and-aft mainsail (a gaff sail) and squaretopsails and possibly topgallant sails.
The brigantine was the second most popular rig for ships built in the American colonies before 1775 (the most popular ship type being a sloop). The brigantine was swifter and more easily maneuvered than a sloop or schooner, and was hence employed for purposes of piracy, espionage, and reconnoitering, and as an outlying attendant upon larger ships for protecting the larger ship, or for supply or landing purposes in a fleet of ships.
The brigantine could be of various sizes, ranging from 50 to 200 tons burden. The brigantine was generally larger than a sloop orschooner but smaller than a brig
