Christopher Columbus on Santa Maria in 1492.
La Santa María de la Inmaculada Concepción (Spanish for The Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception), was the largest of the three ships used by Christopher Columbus in his first voyage. Her master and owner was Juan de la Cosa. The Santa María was probably a medium sized nao (carrack) , about 60 feet long on deck, "very little larger than 100 toneladas" (100 tons), and was used as the flagship for the expedition. The other ships of the Columbus expedition were the smaller caravel-type ships Santa Clara, remembered as La Niña ("The Girl"), and La Pinta ("The Painted One"). All these ships were second-hand (if not third or more) and were never meant for exploration. The Niña, Pinta, and the Santa María were modest sized merchant vessels comparable in size to a modern yacht, and not the largest ships in Europe at the time. They were smaller trade ships greatly surpassed in size by ships like the Great Michael, built in Scotland in 1511 with a length of 73.2 m (240 ft), and a crew of 300 sailors, 120 gunners, and up to 1,000 soldiers. The Peter von Danzig of the Hanseatic League was built in 1462 and was 51 m (167.3 ft) long. Another large ship, the English carrack Grace Dieu, was built during the period 1420–1439, was 66.4 m (218 ft) long, and weighed between 1,400 tons and 2,750 tons. The reason size is mentioned is that Columbus' three ships were built to sail the Mediterranean sea, not the open ocean. This says a great deal about the courage of Columbus and his crew. - wikipedia

A Santa Maria, anteriormente chamada de La Gallega, foi a nau, do tipo carraca, capitânia do Almirante Cristóvão Colombo na viagem em que, navegando para Oeste pelo Oceano Atlântico, veio a descobrir o continente americano (1492).
De propriedade do mestre Juan de la Cosa, morador das vizinhanças do porto de Palos de la Frontera, e que a pilotava nesta viagem, era considerada pelo Almirante como uma embarcação pesada.
Sobre seu naufrágio - A embarcação veio a encalhar num banco de areia, na ilha de Hispaniola (atual baía do Caracol, no Haiti), na noite de 25 de dezembro de 1492. Foram em vão as providências empreendidas para o seu resgate, tendo sido abatido o mastro e o porão esvaziado de mantimentos, sem sucesso.
No local de seu naufrágio, graças ao auxílio dos indígenas, foi providenciado o transbordo da carga e tripulantes para a Niña, tendo Colombo fundado, no local, o Fuerte Navidad, que deixou guarnecido com trinta e nove homens. - Wikipedia
