Hermaphrodite Brig or Brig - schooner A 2 - masted sailing vessel which has square sails on the foremast combined with a schooner rig on the mainmast (triangular topsail over a gaff mainsail).

Ketch A 2 - masted, fore - and - aft - rigged sailing vessel with a mizzenmast stepped aft of a taller mainmast but forward of the rudderpost. Yawl A 2 - masted, fore - and - aft - rigged sailing vessel similar to the ketch but having a smaller mizzenmast (or jigger) stepped abaft the rudderpost. Also called a "dandy".
