None of the large family ethnographic boats and long descent have the grace and the decorative value of the moliceiro Aveiro´ of Ria.
The moliceiros are true rarities that embellish the channels of the lagoon with its jaunty colored prows and sterns uplifted poly chrome festival of naive paintings, gliding elegantly on the blackened and lodacentas waters.
In addition, we find a groove moliceiro allowing the lagoon waters using to its impressive sailing and with the most diverse traditional subjects such as moldings with floral and marine motifs.
This built wooden maritime pine and meek about 14,70mt long and a mast with a mainsail 10,90mt with an area of 80m2, elegant and harmonious has contributed to the preservation of regional identity in the tradition of building Naval lagoon.
