El Barco - Production - Netflix

Filming of the Estrella Polar was done aboard the Cervantes Saavedra. It was launched as a lightvessel named Sydostbrotten (Nr 33) 1934 from the Swedish shipyard Götaverken, in Gothenburg. In 1970, the ship was sold and refitted at the Aveiro shipyard in Portugal. The refit converted the vessel into an iron-hulled barquentine with three masts and a bowsprit. Her length is now 48.5 m (159 ft), with a 7.8 m (26 ft) beam and 4.6 m (15 ft) draft.
