Story

The pride of the Chilean Navy, ESMERALDA was built in Cadiz, Spain, from plans used to build Spain’s JUAN SEBASTIAN DE ELCANO. Both vessels were constructed from Camper & Nicholson design at the same yard, though some twenty-seven years apart. The only difference between these two elegant four-masters are the additional fore-and-aft sail on the SEBASTIAN’s foremast, designating her as a topsail schooner, and the slightly flatter angle of ESMERALDA’s bowsprit. ESMERALDA was completed in 1954. Her distinctive figurehead represents a giant Andes condor, the national bird of Chile.
