Glass sailing ship (8)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'glass' is the first definition.
(schooner is a kind of glass)

'sailing ship' is the second definition.
(schooner is a kind of sailing ship)

(Other definitions for schooner that I've seen before include "that carries sherry" , "Large beer or sherry glass" , "boat" , "No chores on this sailing ship" , "Sailing vessel - drinking vessel" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian and The Telegraph.
