Trying to identify the similar types of boats

Dear friends! This photo was done in in Saint-Petersburg at the beginning of the 20th century. The boat is called "GATCHINKA" after the name of town near Saint-Petersbutg.  This boat is not very typical for Russia. May be someone know the similar types...

Dobre ding,
