Her bottom is completely copper sheathed as can be seen.
Built in Puerto Montt, Chile using United States plans as
an exact replica of an 1870 Maine Brigantine Cargo Schooner.
Design is by the famed naval architect, William Garden.
She is massively and ruggedly constructed in the style of
a 19th century cargo vessel.
Her hull, deck and deck cabins are constructed of durable
Guaiteca Islands Cypress wood and Southern Chile Redwood.
