The ‘caravel’ was a type of light sailing ship used by Portuguese sailors from the 15th to the 18th century to explore the coast of Africa. Using their caravels, Portuguese navigators charted a route around the Cape of Good Hope thus opening new trade links between Europe, Africa and Asia. A typical caravel could reach 30 meters in length and carry up to 130 tons of cargo. At the height of its development the caravel had four masts rigged with square or lateen sails. Compared to other ships of the day, the caravel was very fast, manoeuvrable and dependable – qualities that Caravel Financial seeks to emulate.
