The Jábega is the most symbolic fishing boat in Malaga. An average length of 6 meters (19.6 feet), one beam of 1.80 meters (5.9 feet), and the design of its bow and its shallow draft make it an amazingly fast boat. Because it lacked a rudder, it could carry eight rowers, plus a helmsman with a special oar to guide it. Today there are very few left, after decades of being used on the coast of Malaga.
The fisherman would leave one end of the fishing net on shore while the boat went away drawing a semicircle to get back to land with the other end. The boats were also used to fish for sardines using special nets which were launched into the water from the boats.
