It is something between the modern ketch and the old Flemish 'bilander'.
There were three craft, all of different rig—a schooner, a ketch, and the said bilander.
They called her "the lugger," though her rig was widely different from that, and her due title was "bilander."
Well, mynheer, you have only to pay the difference, and the ketch will do; the bilander sails almost as fast.
A bilander was a small two-master, with the mainsail of lateen form.
But the shot only threw up a long path of fountains, and the bilander ploughed on as merrily as before.
The bilander was a good sizable object, and not to hit her anywhere would be too bad.
