The BAP Unión is a training ship of the Peruvian Navy. It is a four-masted steel hulled full rigged barque built in 2014 by Shipyard Marine Industrial Services of Peru, known as SIMA. The ship's name is a reference to a Peruvian corvette that participated in the War of the Pacific as part of a naval squadron under the command of Miguel Grau, the most important hero of the Peruvian Navy.
Like other similar ships, the Unión has been conceived not only for training purposes, but also to be a sailing ambassador for her home country. Due to its features and dimensions, it has been considered (as of the date it was commissioned) as the largest sail vessel in Latin America.
