The Great Swan-ship or Pelandúno (Q. "Sunset-rounder"). When Elves made their last journey into the West, their ship had to be a masterwork, and this vessel fitted the bill ideally. It had two square sails and one lateen sail, and high castles at either end. Shaped like a swan (even more so than the other designs) and in many ways similar to some later caravel,carrack,roundship, pinnace or holk designs, it was also often called a Great Swan-ship (Q."Aralquacirya"), and its wonderous design had heavily influenced the White-ship Wrights in Dol Amroth. A Pelandúno could carry numerous passengers and possessions, and weather the worst storms of the Great Sea. Only three of these great ships were moored at Edhellond.
