Originally, a small, sharp-built vessel, with two masts and fore-and-aft rig. Sometimes it carried square topsails on one or both masts and was called a topsail schooner. About 1840, longer vessels with three masts, fore-and-aft rigged, came into use, and since that time vessels with four masts and even with six masts, so rigged, are built. Schooners with more than two masts are designated three-masted schooners, four-masted schooners, etc. See Illustration in Appendix.

Naval (1) A sailing vessel normally with two masts, but there have been schooners with up to five masts; it is fore-and-aft rigged on all masts. A Topsail Schooner has a square topsail on the foremast. Of the origin of the name, the old story says that when the first vessel of this type was launched (at Gloucester, Mass., USA, in about 1713) a bystander who was impressed by the way the ship rode the water exclaimed "Oh how she scoons!", to which the builder (Andrew Robinson) replied "A scooner let her be". The word SCON is used in parts of Scotland to mean making flat stones skim and skip along the surface of water, but there is no evidence that this word was in use in America at that time.
