Astilleros y Talleres Celaya, the Bilbao shipbuilders, have, in association with other parties, prepared designs for a series of large sailing-ships which will be able to offer cruises with accommodation not inferior to that of modern passenger-ships. Whether these ships will be built depends upon negotiations now in progress. The article, which gives brief information on the series, mentions that the ships have an easily-handled Bermuda rig, and gives general-arrangement drawings of one of the series. Principal particulars of two of the series are listed; one has a waterline length of 66 m, is 10.5 m in breadth, has a displacement of 420 t, carries 56 to 74 passengers, and has a crew of 16; the other, with a displacement of 1180 tonnes, carries 64 to 90 passengers. Both these ships are three-masted, and their speed <with auxiliary engines> is 12 knots.
