Don Jorge Juan y Santacilia: Marino, ingeniero, explorador, científico, literato. Genio de la construcción naval. Descubra la gran aventura del diseño y construcción de estos avanzados navíos a vela y su participación en los episodios clave de la historia española de los Siglos XVIII y XIX. Una generación de buques injustamente olvidada que marcaron toda una época.Conozca la obra del ilustrado, científico, capitán de navío Jorge Juan, a través de su legado, medio centenar de navíos construidos entre 1751 y 1769, algunos de los cuales, como el Santísima Trinidad, Septentrión, Guerrero, Vencedor, Glorioso, Velasco, Princesa o Santiago de España, marcaron toda una época. Esta es su historia y, a través de ellos, del genio que los construyó. Estamos acostumbrados a considerar la figura del matemático, marino e ilustrado español Jorge Juan bajo el prisma histórico de su obra científica, sus aventuras en Iberoamérica, Inglaterra y Marruecos o su valor como representante de la ilustración española; pero nunca se ha hecho un inventario de la que fue su gran obra, los navíos que se construyeron bajo su dirección.
