THE SHIPS OF CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS

Plans for these ships were provided by the U.S. Naval Institute and were researched and drafted by Xavier Pastor, a leading maritime historian in Spain.

The Nina and Pinta were Caravels whereas the Santa Maria was classified as a Nao. Nao's were large and cumbersome and problematic whereas Caravels were nimble, were worked with ease, and were preferred by explorers such as Columbus. He did not want the Santa Maria but he pretty much did not have a choice.
