Ship Types: The Cutter

The Cutter

The term cutter is applied to small ships, and is determined by either the organization owning the boat, the way the boat is used, the way its oars are arranged or a specific kind of sailing. They have one sail forward and one sail aft on a single mast. They are fast and usually lightly armed. They are also extremely maneuverable.
