Is There a Term for This?

Just wondering if there is a term to describe the style of white hull, varnished wood cabinsides, and bronze fittings.

It's a popular style on wooden sailboats, and I was wondering if it had a name.

I think the English call it 'Classic Looks'. The Spanish call it "Barco Pirata" (I overheard this one when a father and his son passed by my neighbor's classic boat in a boatyard in Andalusia, Spain. I cannot vouch for that man's naval expertise - actually I found the term offensive (remember Trafalgar).

Classic?
