These picturesque and beautiful ships resembled the galleys in terms of their raised quarter-decks, although they were much easier to work, a much appreciated characteristic in the naval battles of the period, where they were involved in numerous daring actions. The xebecs played a decisive role as auxiliaries to fleets on missions of exploration, discovery, lookout and mail; specifically during the Algerian landings and the second siege of Gibraltar.
