Shipwreck of the Esmeralda Corvette, ChileYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
The Esmeralda corvette sinks in the most important naval combat in the history of Chile in 1879 on May 21 in the bay of Iquique. For personal things I have traveled and explored this shipwreck more than a hundred times, with that knowledge I developed this 3D model to show its status to the year 2001, since later tsunamis have affected the shipwreck and I think it is not so easy to distinguish this wonderful ship .
The measurements are approximate of the Corvette are: (original plans do not exist) Length or length: 175 feet or 53.34 meters, but in some measurements it gave 58 meters, Sleeve or width: 32 feet 4 inches or 9.85 meters Draft (retention depth): 17 feet 6 inches or 5.3 meters Tonnage Increase: 850 tons Displacement: 1320 tons. Crew: 202 sailor It was a ship with three masts, which can be seen in the graphic, the trunks that are a stick that goes to the bow (front part of the ship) are not in the wreck. The two anchors do not appear on the model but are in the bow of the shipwreck. Daniel Malfanti
