English term or phrase: snow/snowbrig
It's a type of old sailing ship, specifically some type of brig. Some candidates 'bergantin-goleta' and 'bricbarca'. Anyone can confirm any of these translations or provide a more correct term?
Thank you in advance.

bricbarca
Explanation:
brig: A two-masted sailing ship, square rigged on both masts
Snows carried square sails on both masts, but had a small trysail mast, sometimes called a 'snowmast', stepped immediately abaft the mainmast.

Bergantin:
1. m. Buque de dos palos y vela cuadra o redonda.
~ goleta.
1. m. El que usa aparejo de goleta en el palo mayor.

Otro derivado del aparejo de bergantín es el bricbarca, buque de tres o más palos con los dos primeros de aparejo cuadrado al estilo del bergantín y el resto de cuchillo,

Mira la silueta de un bricbarca en la referencia, el mástil con la vela de cuchillo a popa, como dice la definición del snow brig.
