Replica: Galleon across the Atlantic

There is a growing number of historic replicas afloat, and several are making ocean crossings, but in a much safer manner than the originals. One such is an 85ft replica of Ferdinand Magellan’s galleon, NAO Victoria, which crossed the Atlantic last winter aboard DYT Yacht Transport’s semi-submersible yacht carrier Super Servant 4.

Managed by Fundacion NAO Victoria, the sailing ship was loaded aboard the DYT vessel in Palma de Mallorca, Spain and delivered to Port Everglades, Florida in time for Christmas. It has since undertaken a cultural exhibition tour to educate people about the first complete circumnavigation of the world by Magellan’s expedition in the 16th century. The original NAO Victoria was launched in 1519 as one of five ships in the explorer’s Spanish expedition. JS
