This 1:25 scale wooden ship building kit depicts the Captain's boat from the Spanish galleon, San Juan Nepomuceno. This ship was part of the Spanish Armada during the 18th Century. It was constructed in the shipyards of Guarnizo (Cantabria) in 1765.
The San Juan Nepomuceno fulfilled different performances until in 1803 when under the control of Cosme Damián Churruca it took part in the Battle of Trafalgar. The ship was surrounded by up to six English ships, and was ordered to surrender. This happened after the death of Churruca and his second in command. Captured by the Royal Navy, the San Juan Nepomuceno would be towed to Gibraltar and put on display for visitors.
