The classification of ships is usually based mostly on the configuration of their rigging. To be called a ship the vessel must be square-rigged and must have three full masts with at least three stages of sails - course, topsail and t'gallant. Any other vessel not meeting these criteria is a boat and is known by its class name such as sloop, brig, xebec and etc.
