The Caravel was a two- to four-mast sailing-ship type from the 14th to the 16th century. Features were 100 to 180 tons of displacement, low draft, high stern and mostly latitude. Caravels were fast and showed very good properties at the wind. The Portuguese and Spanish caravels played a decisive role in the discovery, research and trade along the West African coast and to America. Since the Caravels were fast and manoeuvrable, they were also very popular with pirates.

Since the caravels were fast and manoeuvrable, they were also very popular with pirates. With the ship's hull of ZITERDES, all sailors and pirates, who are enthusiastic about the tabletop, have an ideal base for a glorious ship. ZITERDES has deliberately refrained from further shipbuilding, since each player has his own ideas. With a bit of time and skill, the ship's hull of the caravelle can be equipped with masts and canvas to form a fully-fledged sailing vessel. No fear! This can also be less experienced hobbyists. The hard foam is easy to work with. Quickly holes are drilled for the masts or further details such as ship constructions are positioned and glued. Cutting out the openings for the guns is also less difficult and complex than you think.
