Portuguese name for a special elongated boat type with which the base wines for the port wine from the Douro Valley to the postage -Vorstadt Vila Nova de Gaia were transported or were. For the most part, these boats only sailed downstream with the current flowing, but rarely sailed. Upstream, the boats were mostly tiled. Today, they have almost no meaning and serve mainly tourism purposes. They lie before the Lodges (Warehouses) of port wineries or participate in historical regattas.
