A sixteenth-century Spanish galleon was a ship of 45 - 55 meters long (which increased with the years) and could easily weigh 1000 tonnes (2204622.621 lb). I do not know if what they have done is like a Spanish galleon in size, because were large vessels

Hola relampago,
According to one of the blogs (reference on page 1) this seventeenth century replica measures 51m long (eslora). (Would that be correct?)
It is like the galleons of yore that sailed to Manila (Islas Filipinas) and China; hence, why it is going to the Expo in Shanghai.

I can not give very specific details because I am not an expert on ships, but it may be that the galleon of the picture is not really a galleon, seems a " carraca " or a " carabela ". Or if is a galleon, should be a small galleon, if we understand that the smaller Spanish galleon weighed over 500 tonnes

For this reason I said I found it strange that the vessel in the photo is a galleon, since they could weigh easily 1000 tonnes, or more, as the Santa Trinidad or the San Diego, both of 2000 tonnes

Galleon Santa Trinidad (route of Manila), XVIII century

Displacement 2000 t
Length 51.5 m
Beam 15.2 m
Depth 10.1 m
Draught 9.3 m
Armament 54 guns
413 Crew crew

However, there is another " Santa Trinidad ", but was a line ship, not a galleon, and was the largest ship of the XVIII century, which was one of the 237 line ships that the Spanish armada bounced. You have one, the Victory

¡hola relámpago!

I see that you have edited the (large!) photos of the Santa Trinidad. It does appear to be larger than the Galeón Andalucía, but, as you mentioned, the Santa Trinidad is an XVIIIth century vessel, so perhaps it was built larger to accommodate horses, cannons, troops, etc?
The galleon Andalucia has a crew of only 40, but it does have modern fittings (fibre optics etc.), thereby also reducing the weight.
I, too, am not an expert on sailing ships. Nao, carabela, carraca o galeón for me are words with a romantic history.

Here is a map to plot it's course:

But do not confuse, because were two ships with the same name. The difference is that one was a galleon (in this case, XVII century) and the other was a line ship (XVIII century)

One similarity between them was their great size and tonnage

In an age of speed, jet travel, and, now, with some uncertainty caused by the recent volcanic ash, I feel inspired to read the logbook of the Galeón Andalucía. It gives an insight of this different form of travel.
However, I do keep in mind that modern technology has allowed this "speedy" glance into the lives of the crew.

Thanks for the information, Fred. I got a bit lost on the tracking map, however.
All this exploration/navigation reminds me a bit of the excited discussions we had as children around the dinner table, especially in the (many) years following the voyage of the Kon-Tiki. Wish I'd have paid more attention back then!
I'll keep an "eye on the horizon" for further news of the galeón.

According to the track at 7.00 ( Not sure what time zone they are using ) this morning they were ½ mile off the Southern entrance to Gibraltar port.

Also unlike El Galeon the Phoenicia appears to be a 20 Oarspower ship
