A barge is a large boat with a flat bottom, usually used for carrying goods and people on canals and rivers.[1]

In Eldest, Roran and the men of Carvahall hired Clovis to get them on his three barges from Narda to Teirm.[2] It seems as though Clovis' barges were also fit to sail on the sea, at least near the shore, because that's where they traveled. The barges got the villagers safely to Teirm, where they switched them for another transport.[3]
