The structural form of the stern is the main classification criterion for traditional boats
Tserniki boats in general
Tserniki was a type of traditional boat with a sharp stern. Tserniki-type boats were predominantly used in the Eastern Aegean and Asia Minor, but disappeared after WWII.
Aghios Nikolaos is among the earliest surviving examples of Greek traditional boats. She was built in 1910 in Samos. For decades it was used for the transportation and supply of fruit and vegetables on the island of Hydra. Today, there is provision for Aghios Nikolaos to be included in the exhibits of the Aegean Shipbuilding and Marine Crafts Museum in Samos.
