Model by one of the best model shipbuilders of the 20th century, Jaume Puig Agut, in the 1960s. Barques de bou were boats used in pairs for trawling, with each pulling one end of a net. Bearing lateen sails, some of their distinguishing elements are their centreboards (which prevent lateral drift when trawling) or a manual winch on deck that was used to bring in nets.
