The Ships and Their Stories

Learn a little more about the ships, their histories, and the people who sail and built them. 

Gulden Leeuw

A big, sturdy sailing ship reminiscent of the 1930’s, with the deck layout of a classic yacht, the Gulden Leeuw (Golden Lion) was designed and built for real bluewater sailing, and has cruised all the oceans of the world.

La Union

This magnificent four-masted frigate is a training ship of the Peruvian navy, as well as a sailing ambassador for her home country. She is designed for a crew of 250 and was launched in December 2014.

Esmerelda

Esmerelda is a four-masted topsail schooner launched in 1953. She is the pride of the Chilean navy, bearing the name of prior ships in the service of Chile that sailed to glory and into the history books.

Amerigo Vespucci
