    There is sailing (or was until very recently) a large lateen rig ocean-going feluca called San Guiseppe Due under the British flag. The only reference I can come up with so far is
    http://www.altomareblu.com/?tag=ajmone-cat
    [an Italian-language site] where there are good pictures as well.
    In the past I have met the crew and listened to them extolling the sailing qualities. If they can be found some 20/21st century information will be available [from them].
    Try also this organisation:

    They organise races from Barcelona, Italy and Tunisia etc.
