Set sail for adventure on the high seas.

Spain’s celebrated naval architect Álvaro de Bazán first designed the prototype for the galleon in the 1550s. Galleons were the most versatile of all sixteenth-century ships. Lighter and faster than carracks, galleons served as transports, trading vessels and warships. They were more affordable, too; historical records show that five galleons could be built for the same price as three carracks! This easy-to-build kit features textured sails, a decorative stern castle, side oars, authentic flags and a display stand.
