Palarran *Far Wanderer* was the Name of Aldarion’s ship. The origin of the name is given below.
|Pallando, despite the spelling, perhaps contains palan "afar", as in palantir and in Pallaran "Far Wanderer," the name of Aldarion's ship*|
The ship was supposedly the greatest ship, (great probably in the meaning of big/huge) ever made.
|He spoke no more to his father of such matters, but passed his days upon the ship Eämbar in the company of the Venturers, and in the building of a vessel greater than any made before: that ship he named Palarran, the Far Wanderer*|
The first voyage of Palarran covered four years from 816-820 S.A. However, it is said that even then Aldarion shortened his journey for a love of Erendis was stirred in his heart and it yearned for him to return to land.
Palarran also has an importance in regard of Aldarion’s relationship with Erendis. For when Erendis brought The Green Bough of Return to be places at Palarran’s prow was the time when Aldarion first looked at Erendis with love.
