ART-1022250 ARTESANIA LATINA Juan Sebastián de Elcano
ART-1022250 ARTESANIA LATINA Juan Sebastián de Elcano
The Juan Sebastián Elcano is a training ship for the Royal Spanish Navy. A four-masted topsail schooner, at 113 metres (370 feet) long she is the third-largest Tall Ship in the world. She is named after Spanish explorer Juan Sebastián Elcano, captain of Ferdinand Magellan's last exploratory fleet. The ship also carries the de Elcano coat of arms, which was granted to the family by Emperor Charles I following Elcano's return in 1522 from Magellan's global expedition. The coat of arms is a terraqueous globe with the motto "Primus Circumdedisti Me" (meaning: "First to circumnavigate me"). The Juan Sebastián de Elcano was built in 1927 in Cadiz, Spain, and her hull was designed by the Echevarrieta y Larriñaga shipyard in Cadiz. Her plans were also used twenty-five years later to construct her Chilean sail training vessel sister ship Esmeralda in 1952-1954. She is a four-masted, topsail schooner, and has a steel hull.
