Boats of the J√°bega type were common from Portugal to Catalonia and were intended for netting. This type of vessel appeared during the Moorish rule and its name comes from the Arabic word for "net", "seine". Boats are distinguished by bright coloring, individual for each fisherman. The museum presents the boat Maria del Carmen, made in 1926.
