DOS AMIGOS - Brigantine Schooner 1830

She was a slaver, one of the famous early 19th century Baltimore clippers. She was low-slung and fast, double-masted, small and agile, painted black to make it easier to hide herself off the African coast after slaving had been abolished. Her hull was modified, with space below decks to bring the slaves from Africa to Cuba for the sugar plantations. Her last voyage as a slaver was in 1830, sailing out of the port of Havana on 13th July, with a crew of 34 and armed with a single carronade, 16 rifles and 15 pistols. She was captured by the British brig HMS Black Joke, with 567 African captives aboard. She was then put up for auction and purchased by the Commodore of the British Anti-Slavery Squadron, Jonathan Hayes, who converted into an interception ship and named her Fair Rosamond. She patrolled the seas around Cuba until she was withdrawn from service in 1843.

MISSISSIPPI - Paddle Steamer

These legendary riverboats sailed the Mississippi throughout the 19th century, following a route that passed through the most emblematic cities along the river's banks, from its origins in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, to the mouth of the river, down in New Orleans. The main characteristic of these delightful wooden boats were the great, steam engine powered paddle-wheels. The shallow draft of these fine boats allowed them to navigate all but the smallest of the main rivers.

MONTANES - 74 Gun Ship of the Line 1794

The Montañés represents the maximum level of perfection achieved by Spanish naval architecture, when Spanish ships-of-the-line were a match for those of any navy in the world. The figurehead of this ship is not the royal lion but a montañes (highlander), in gratitude for the financial contribution towards her construction made by the people of the mountains. She was launched in Ferrol on 14th May 1794. It is said that she was an extraordinary vessel, whether sailing close to the wind, running free or with a following wind, and that, more than any other ship, she kept her batteries out of the water. She was engaged in a number of battles, including Trafalgar, where she mounted 76 guns and 4 carronades with mortars, located on her quarter deck. On 6th March 1810, in a violent storm, she sank off the Bay of Cadiz. Includes nine plan drawings and clearly written instructions, accompanied by corresponding colour photos.

SAN JUAN - Felucca

Following the War of Independence, after Spain had lost her American colonies, merchant marine ships all but disappeared from the peninsula, leaving only small coastal sailing boats behind to re-establish the routes to the Antilles. Through the Royal Decree issued by Charles III, trade was re-opened with those colonies that remained faithful and it was the felucca, "San Juan" (El Glorioso), that made the first voyage.

SAN MARCOS - Portugese Galleon

This galleon is a direct descendant of the "caracks", large, distinguished galleons, originally Mediterranean based but later sailing the Atlantic. The name galleon was first given to a type of ship from Liguria, built at the start of the 16th century. Initially designed as merchantmen they were heavily armed, for defence against pirates and other enemies, but ended up, after 1570, becoming men of war. Although the galleons reached their greatest splendour when they plied the Atlantic, the height of their development, they were the result of accumulated experiences on the European Atlantic front and their experiences as merchantmen in the Mediterranean.

In 1588, King Philip II of Spain put the Duke of Sidonia in charge of the Spanish Armada. With the goal of invading England, 131 ships and 17,000 men set out for Dunkirk, where they were to join forces with the Duke of Parma and pick up another 16,000 men. One of the most important ships of the fleet was the San Marcos, a Portugese galleon of 790 tons. She carried 33 guns, 292 soldiers and 117 sailors. Heavily damaged during the battle and punished by high winds, San Marcos broke up on the reef between Mutton Island and Lurga just off Ireland's west coast.

SAN MARTIN - Galleon

This was one of the few ships that managed to escape the storms and the English fleet's guns.
