A ketch, HMS William and the Jadis look like this

A ketch is a two-masted fore-and-aft rigged vessel with the first mast taller than the aft mast, and the steering position behind the aft mast (the mizzen mast). If the steering position is ahead of the mizzen mast, the vessel is a yawl. They sometimes have square sails on the mainmast.
