"Capitán Miranda" - Sailing ship

A three-mast schooner of the Uruguayan Navy

The "Capitán Miranda" was originally a motor ship. The Uruguayan Navy had it built in 1930 as a hydrographic research vessel and then used it for more than four decades to survey river, lake and sea floors. In the mid-1970s, the "Miranda" narrowly escaped decommissioning. However, it was converted into a three-mast schooner and put back into service in 1978. Today she serves the Uruguayan Navy as a training ship and has already been a guest in Bremerhaven several times during the SAIL Bremerhaven.
