The 3 ships used by Christopher Columbus:

1.NINA- This ship has 24 men boarded on it. The captain’s name was Vicente Yanez. It was amongst the three ships used by Cristopher Columbus on his first voyage to West Indies in 1492.
2.PINTA- The meaning of the word ‘PINTA’ is ‘Painted One’. This is also a nickname given to it.
3.SANTA MARIA- This ship was the largest of all the ships but also the slowest. It weighed around 100 tons that are quite heavy and 58 feet long in the deck. It also had a nickname just like the 2, “La Gallega” meaning Galician.
