San Martin
Rado Javor

San Martin was built as a Portuguese Navy galleon and became the flagship of Duke of Medina Sedonia, commander-in-chief of the Spanish Armada. São Martinho had an overall length of about 180 feet with a beam of about 40 feet.
She carried 48 heavy guns on two enclosed gun decks, plus multiple smaller weapons. According to a painting by Hendrik Cornelisz Vroom, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, San Marten had three masts, two square-rigged masts and one lateen mizzen-mast. She was shown with a stern gallery and with the long beakhead characteristic of a galleon. The foremast was set forward of the forecastle.
