The Karve were a small type of Viking longship, with a broad hull somewhat similar to the knarr. They were used for coastal passages in war and ordinary transport, carrying people, cargo or livestock. Because they were able to navigate in very shallow water, they were also used for coasting. Karves had broad beams of approximately 5.2 m.
