Production[edit]

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 Götaverkan AB, in Goteborg. In 1970, she was sold, and refitted at the Aveiro shipyard in Portugal.[2] 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.
