The fishing fleet of Grado reached its peak at the end of ‘800.
Boats with flat bottom like ‘batele’, suited to sail the shallows of the lagoon, or like the ‘spiferi’ which we can see in the picture: boats with rounded bottom, provided with a keel, also able to sail open sea. The ‘spiferi’ with the advent of the engine, have superseded the ‘bragossi’, fishing boats which were common in the High Adriatic Sea.
