Xebec (pronounced zebec, also spelt xebeck, xebeque, zebec(k), zebecque, chebec, shebeck):
Xebec’s were highly innovative sea-vessels designed to be fast and agile but at the same time, small and affordable. From the 16th to 19th centuries, Xebec’s completely revolutionized trade with the Mediterranean as its hub, playing a pivotal role in bringing new products and ideas to markets by allowing small traders to compete with the large merchant trading companies of the era.
