Felucca - Egypt

A felucca is a traditional wooden sailing boat used in protected waters of the Red Sea and eastern Mediterranean including Malta, and particularly along the Nile in Egypt. Its rig consists of one or two lateen sails.They are usually able to board ten-some passengers and the crew consists of two or three people. Despite being made obsolete by motorboats and ferries, feluccas are still in active use as a means of transport in Nile-adjacent cities like Aswan or Luxor. They are especially popular among tourists who can enjoy their quieter and calmer mood than motorboats have to offer.// San Franc

Chuck'n Da Deuce :

I'm doing a speech on the Felucca, which is an ancient egyptian sailboat, it was used for travel, and shipping goods, i've use wikepidea, but now i'm turning to the public. Anyone with good pictures, or maybe "real" personal stories about Feluccas, also if anyone knows how far there range of use was. Serious question for serious people. THANKS

Maam Lenlen ♥ :
"Nice photos: Feluccas are sail boats that have been used on the Nile since antiquity. You can take short sunset sails in Cairo and Alexandria or you can opt for longer cruises which usually depart from Aswan. A Felucca is not quite as comfortable as a luxury cruise ship but nothing can beat sailing in a quiet rig that was designed thousands of years ago.
