    INS Sudarshini is a sail training ship built by Goa Shipyard Limited for the Indian Navy. The ship is a follow on class of INS Tarangini which was commissioned in 1997.
    "Sudarshini" means "beautiful lady Sundari" after the younger half-sister of Buddha.[1] The ship has been designed by Colin Mudie, a naval architect and yacht designer from the United Kingdom.
    Sudarshini's hull was launched on 25 January 2011 on the West Coast of India at the port town of Vasco da Gama, Goa, and by then the major portion of work had been completed. She will be commissioned and handed over to the Indian Navy soon.
    Sudarshini is a steel, three- masted sailing ship with a barque rig. Her 18 sails have a total area of approximately 1,035 square metres (11,140 sq ft). Capable of operations under sail or power, and with a complement of 60 personnel, she can remain at sea for at least 20 days at a time. Built for worldwide operations, she will be used as a basic seamanship and character building platform.
