Battle Of Lepanto by RadoJavor Battle Of Lepanto by RadoJavor
Huge Venetian galeasse San Lorenzo. Attacking the turkish fleet in Battle of Lepanto 1571. Was the biggest battle of oarvessels, about 200 galleys on each side . Design of the ship based on old painting and some engravings. I hope its a realistic reconstruction. This was my first picture showing some ship, is about 2 years old.

Did you know that galleys were used well into the 19th century?

Seems like the perfect way to patrol shallow waters or inland seas (the Mediterranean, for instance), and provide speed AND firepower.

Last time it was used was in the Crimean War in 1854, apparently.

Two high in the water, much of the white hull should be inside the water, because it is quite a flat and wide hull. I have this ship as model kit.   :-)

Great work, as usual!

It's not often that someone makes a picture of the Venetian Galeasses in action, and this one is simply amazing! This does more than justice to the awesomeness that is the 16th century Galeass.
