Argentinian training ship PRESIDENTE SARMIENTO in Boston 1915

Another Photos from the old photo album. (The photo was taken in Boston 1915)

ARA Presidente Sarmiento was a  training ship for the Argentine Navy. She is considered to be the last intact cruising training ship from the 1890s.

The ship was originally built for the Argentine naval academy. The ARA Presidente Sarmiento made thirty seven annual training cruises including six circumnavigations of the globe. The ship was retired as a seagoing vessel in 1938, but continued to serve as a stationary training ship until 1961. She is now maintained in her original 1898 appearance as a museum ship near the center of Buenos Aires. This ship was named for Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, the seventh President of Argentina.

In addition to its sailing rig this ship includes a large triple expansion steam engine supplied by two coal-fired boilers exhausting through the rear stack. An additional auxiliary boiler exhausting through the forward stack provides steam for other than propulsion, including two engines driving electrical generators on the main deck (below the weather deck).

A single coal bunker is positioned between the main and auxiliary boiler rooms
