The Sixareen is an odd ship. It is a single-masted, 50 foot fishing boat. It is divided into 6 compartments and is crewed by a total of 6 men, hence its name. It is built of oak. This boat is used in the Shetland islands, a group of islands northeast of the United Kingdom.The Shetland Islands are very close to Scotland.This is one heck of a beautiful ship. Very much like a standard sailing ship.
