The hull is defined as low and flat, having one extremity rising and always equipped with a projection or "spur".Locomotive force is provided by numerous short strokes understood, due to their great number, rather as paddles than as oars. One of the very early representation of boat in the Aegean area is a graffito from Thessaly dated around 4500-3300 BC.

Crete provides over 55 per cent of the catalogue, the islands and the mainland less than 25 per cent each.

Whereas the Minoan material is spread out over a timespan of a millenium (2500-1500 BC), the Cycladic documents are concentrated to the Early Cycladic II period, and to the site of Akrotiri in Late Minoan IA, while the mainland sees a scattering of inconsequential evidence down to the final phases of the Bronze Age, when a slight increase becomes manifest.

One of the earliest cycladic Type I ship representation is on a fragment of white marble from Naxos dated around 2500-2000 BC. Stern rises near vertically, surmounted by appendance departing obliquely aft to level out to horizontal at half its lenght. Another early large Aegean Type I ship is represented in this Cycladic terracotta "frying pan" from Syros dated around 2500-2000 BC.

Two oblique projections from hull, understood as tholes. This multi-oared galley has a long vertical prow with a fish symbol mounted on top, perhaps acting as a wind vane to detect wind direction relative to the vessel.

Just left of post, oblique line with ball terminal.

Lead boat model from Naxos dated about 2500-2000 BC which shows both similarity and differencies in the hull design and vertical prow respect to the contemporary typical Type I ships.

The Aegean has since prehistoric times been a sea that has united rather than separated the large or small islands.

Between these islands, there were narrow sea passages and shallow gulfs, accessible by some primitive sailing means.

It is a flat-bottomed craft on four feet, placed one at bow and stern, two amidship. The presence of a mast, and the use of oars rather than paddles, however, indicate that a significant increase in the beam has taken place.

Later members (the type disappears at the end of Middle Minoan II) show a more gradual transistion between keel and sternpost as well as greater variability in bow morphology: the angle between the spur and the post appears to equal either ninety, forty-five, or thirty-three degrees.

Above craft, animal (goat) and man holding weapons in both hands (right: knife? Also the cords or beams hanging bellow the fish symbol might conceivably act as some sort of wind catching element.
