Except for Noah's ark, the Santa Maria is undoubtedly the best known ship in the world. On September 9, 1492 Christopher Columbus set sail from the Canaries in search of the westerly sea route to India - on a voyage that was to become one of the most well-known discoveries in history. He chose the Santa Maria as the flagship of his little fleet. With 100 tons and a crew of 52, she was the biggest of the three ships. After an arduous voyage, on October 12, Columbus at last reached Watling Island in the Bahamas, believing it to be "one of the islands which are set down in the maps at the end of the Orient". On a subsequent reconnaissance trip the Santa Maria ran aground off Haiti. Her wood was ultimately used for the construction of a fort.  Features of this kit include structurally detailed decks and hull, ladders and a windlass, two anchors, two water barrels, masts with yards, shields with coats of arms, linen-look sails, crew figures, rigging yarn, a display stand and transfers for the sails and shields.
