Rubban was the term used to describe the captain of a sailing vessel in Zakhara.[1]


Sometimes, the rubban and nakhuda, or owner, were the same person. A rubban was in charge of overseeing the safety and daily operation of the ship and her crew. While at sea, a rubban had full authority, deferring to the nakhuda only while in port.[1]
