The 17th century


The San Felipe Launched in 1690, was one of the most beautiful Spanish ships of the 17th century. 

Her slim profile and wide spread of sail bestowed great maneuverability and agility. She established herself very quickly as her impressive record in the first 4 years of service made her the flagship of the famous Spanish Armada. Under the command of Commodore Enrique MacDonnell, San Felipe was armed to take on the mightiest ships in the French and British navies.

San Felipe held a very active major role in the war against Britain and France. In 1705, she participated in a furious and heroic battle between 12 Spanish ships and 35 British ships. After 24 hours of furious battle, she was captured but was so badly damaged and went to the bottom with several tons of gold.
