MEXICAN TALL SHIP

MEXICAN TALL SHIP PHOTOGRAPHED BY WILLIAM MURPHY


The 270-foot-long Cuauhtémoc ship, which sailed into Dublin this morning, is on a training voyage of northern Europe with Ireland being the second last stop.

ARM Cuauhtémoc is a sail training vessel of the Mexican Navy, named for the last Mexica Hueyi Tlatoani Cuauhtémoc who was captured and executed in 1525.

She is the last of four sister ships built by the Naval Shipyards of Bilbao, Spain, in 1982, all built to a design similar to the 1930 designs of the German firm Blohm & Voss, like Gorch Fock, USCGC Eagle and the NRP Sagres.
