Carrack probably took her name from Arabic word karraka, which means light boat (Carrack, carraque, kraeck, Carraca).
This is a big sailing ship in use from the 14th to the 17th century, designed for transporting goods.
Carrack appeared in Venice in the early 14th century, but almost at the same time began to be built in the city of Dubrovnik (Ragusa) as the largest cargo ships in the Adriatic.
In the 15th century Carrack had spread from the Adriatic, the Mediterranean Sea and at the end of the 15th century, the Atlantic Ocean. Then they were built by the Spanish, Portuguese, French and Dutch.
In the 16th century Dubrovnik's Carrack were among the world’s largest ships and sailed to England. The large and spacious Carrack is called argosies, name that derives from Ragusies, the adjective of Ragusa. How popular were the Carrack of Dubrovnik is the best proof that the English have created for them the literary expression of Argosy ship.
Such ships in Dubrovnik were categorized by carrying capacity. Ships up to about 400 Dubrovnik wagons were called Navas, those from 400 to 600 wagons were called small carracks, and from 600 to 800 wagons carracks. Such ships with a carrying capacity of 800 to 1500 wagons were called ''karakuns'', large carracks.
