                                   TREASURE BOAT
           
                                                          (Bao-Chuan ship)

Over 600 years ago, Zheng He led a mighty armada on the first of seven voyages on a mission of diplomacy and trade. The armada included treasure boats (or Bao-Chuan), which are the largest wooden ships ever built (30 times larger than the Santa Maria.) The Zheng He voyages covered 10,000 miles with a fleet of more than 300 ships and crews totaling 30,000 men. The voyages sailed from China, crossed the South China Sea, Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea and went as far as East Africa. From 1405 to 1433, Zheng made seven voyages, visiting 37 countries. He traveled through Southeast Asia to faraway Africa and Arabia, leading the biggest maritime expenditure of that time.
