A barque, barc, or bark is a type of sailing vessel.
The word barc appears to have come from Celtic languages. The form adopted by English, perhaps from Irish, was bark, while that adopted by French, perhaps from Gaulish, was barge and barque. English is a West Germanic language originating in England and is the First language for most people in the United Kingdom, the United States Irish (ga ''Gaeilge'' is a Goidelic language of the Indo-European language family originating in Ireland and historically spoken by the Irish.

By the end of the 18th century, however, the term barque (sometimes, particularly in the USA, spelled bark) came to refer to any vessel with a particular type of rig. The 18th century lasted from 1701 to 1800 in the Gregorian calendar, in accordance with the Anno Domini / Common Era numbering system A sail-plan is a set of drawings usually prepared by a naval architect. This comprises three (or more) masts, fore-and-aft sails on the aftermost mast and square sails on all other masts.

Throughout the period of sail, the word was used also as a shortening of the barca-longa of the Mediterranean Sea. The barca longa was a two or three-masted Lugger found on the coasts of Spain and Portugal as well as more widely in the Mediterranean Sea.
The advantage of these rigs was that they needed smaller (therefore cheaper) crews than a comparable full-rigged ship or brig-rigged vessel. Conversely, the ship rig tended to be retained for training vessels where the larger the crew, the more seamen were trained. Another advantage is that a barque can outperform a schooner or barkentine, and is both easier to handle and better to rise towards wind than a full-rigged ship. A schooner (ˈskuːnɚ is a type of sailing vessel characterized by the use of fore-and-aft sails on two or more masts Schooners were first used by the While full-rigged ship is the best runner available, and while fore-and-aft riggers are the best to rise towards wind, the barque is the best compromise between these two, and combine the best of these two.
Most ocean-going windjammers were four-masted barques, since the four-masted barque is considered the most efficient rig available because of its ease of handling, small need of manpower, good running cababilities and good capabilities of rising towards wind. A windjammer was a type of Sailing ship with a large Iron or Steel hull, built to carry Cargo in the late Nineteenth century Usually the fore mast was the tallest, and that of Moshulu extends to 58 m off the deck. History Originally named Kurt after Dr Kurt Siemers director general and president of the Hamburg shipping company "G The four-masted barque can be handled with a surprisingly small crew - at minimum, ten, and while the usual crew was around thirty, almost half of them could be apprentices.
