17th Century Replica Ship, Spain Crew Coming to The Hudson Valley
Hudson Valley residents will soon have the unique chance to go on-board one of the world’s largest and most accurate replicas of an ancient ship.
The 170 foot-long Spanish Galleon replica, El Galeon is making her only stop in Kingston, before she departs back across the Atlantic for Spain.
El Galeon will be open to the public from Saturday August 5 until Tuesday August 8 at the Hudson Valley Maritime Museum.
El Galeon is one of the world’s largest and most accurate replicas of the classic 17th-century vessel known for exploration and trade.
Visitors will have the chance to explore all six decks and walk under three masts topping off at 121-feet.
The ship’s crew, which have sailed the vessel over 50,000 nautical miles, is mostly from Spain. Carter Blease, a spokesperson for the ship, tells Hudson Valley Post the crew is very eager to visit the Hudson Valley and meet local residents.
Tickets cost $10 for adults, $5 for children.
