Best Answer

The Santa Maria's overall keel length was 115 feet. But the length of her waterline (LWL) was only about 72 feet, which gives her a theoretical maximum hull speed of only 11.3 knots. The other ships were smaller and sleeker, and therefore faster. See http://www.answers.com/topic/nina-pinta-and-santa-maria
