Occre San Marcos
This galleon is a direct descendant of the "caracks", large, distinguished galleons, originally Mediterranean based but later sailing the Atlantic. The name galleon was first given to a type of ship from Liguria, built at the start of the 16th century. Initially designed as merchantmen they were heavily armed, for defence against pirates and other enemies, but ended up, after 1570, becoming men of war. Although the galleons reached their greatest splendour when they plied the Atlantic, the height of their development, they were the result of accumulated experiences on the European Atlantic front and their experiences as merchantmen in the Mediterranean.

This galleon is a direct descendant of the "caracks", large, distinguished galleons, originally Mediterranean based but later sailing the Atlantic. The name galleon was first given to a type of ship from Liguria, built at the start of the 16th century. Initially designed as merchantmen they were heavily armed, for defence against pirates and other enemies, but ended up, after 1570, becoming men of war. Although the galleons reached their greatest splendour when they plied the Atlantic, the height of their development, they were the result of accumulated experiences on the European Atlantic front and their experiences as merchantmen in the Mediterranean.

In 1588, King Philip II of Spain put the Duke of Sidonia in charge of the Spanish Armada. With the goal of invading England, 131 ships and 17,000 men set out for Dunkirk, where they were to join forces with the Duke of Parma and pick up another 16,000 men. One of the most important ships of the fleet was the San Marcos, a Portugese galleon of 790 tons. She carried 33 guns, 292 soldiers and 117 sailors. Heavily damaged during the battle and punished by high winds, San Marcos broke up on the reef between Mutton Island and Lurga just off Ireland’s west coast.

The San Marcos plank-on-frame kit uses laser cut wooden parts and double planking in flexible limewood and African walnut. The fittings package contains lifeboat, brass cannon, belaying pins, eyebolts and rings, gudgeons and pintles, hardwood blocks and deadeyes and photo-etched detail parts. Pre-sewn cloth sails, silk-screened flag and rigging line complete the model. Detailed plans and pictorial instructions with over 100 photographs.
