Númerrámar

The great ship of Vëantur

The mighty golden-sailed ship of the Númenórean explorer and navigator Vëantur. It was Vëantur who first achieved the sea-journey back from Númenor to Middle-earth. That first voyage was made aboard a ship named Entulessë, but for his later journeys Vëantur sailed aboard Númerrárar, taking with him Aldarion (the grandson of King Tar-Elendil), and so inspired a love of the Sea that lasted throughout Aldarion's life. After Vëantur's retirement, he granted Númerrámar to Aldarion as a gift, and the ship made at least two more journeys to Middle-earth with Aldarion as its captain.
