Sail Baltimore invites you to come aboard for a FREE TOUR of the stunning 371' Spanish tall ship, Juan Sebastián de Elcano! Please visit sailbaltimore.org for tour times.

She is a four-masted topsail, steel-hulled barquentine (schooner barque) training ship for the Spanish Navy. At 113 meters (371 ft) long, she is the third-largest tall ship in the world and is the sailboat that has sailed the furthest, covering more than 2,000,000 nautical miles (3,700,000 km; 2,300,000 mi) in her history.

She is named after Spanish explorer Juan Sebastián Elcano, captain of Ferdinand Magellan's last exploratory fleet and the man to lead the first circumnavigation of the world. Juan Sebastián de Elcano was built in 1927 in Cadiz, Spain, and her hull was designed by the naval architect Mr C E Nicholson of Camper and Nicholsons Ltd of Southampton. Constructed by Echevarrieta y Larrinaga shipyard[2] in Cadiz. After the proclamation of the Second Spanish Republic in April of 1931, the ship became part of the Spanish Republican Navy.
