The Nao Victoria is a replica of the famous Victoria, the first ship to have sailed around the world, between 1519 and 1522. Accompanied by four other boats of the Spanish flotilla, commander Fernand de Magellan led an expedition to discover the western route to the “Spice Islands”. It was the only boat to return from this journey across the world. The final trace of this boat was in 1547, when it subsequently disappeared during a journey between Saint-Domingue and Spain.
Before building Nao Victoria, a long process of historical research was undertaken by Ignacio Fernandez Vial, its designer and builder, to map out its shape and define its characteristics as a ship (rounded hull, forecastle and aftercastle).
