The Matthew visiting Falmouth. She was a caravel sailed by John Cabot in 1497 from Bristol to North America To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Cabot's voyage, a replica of the Matthew was built in Bristol by the Bristol Classic Boat Company. The design was by naval architect Colin Mudie. She was dedicated in a ceremony during the first International Festival of the Sea, held in Bristol's Floating Harbour in 1996. The full-size replica is 23.7m long with a beam of 6.3m with a draft of 2.1m and 219 m2 of sail. On 29 February 2012 the Matthew's ownership was transferred to The Matthew of Bristol Trust.
