TheBasilisk

The Basilisk shortly before departing Pisa, in April 1478.

"Three-masted carrack, Captain Antonio de Noli, crew of fifteen, carrying top-of-the-line Florentine textiles, left Pisa two days ago sailing west, yes?"
Amerigo Vespucci.[src]

The Basilisk was a three-masted carrack that shipped "top-of-the-line Florentine textiles" to the west. Its captain was Antonio de Noli.

In April, 1478, Girolamo Riario made "an arrangement" with Captain de Noli so that he would take him to the New World. Shortly before they arrived in South America in October, they faced a storm and were shipwrecked.
