On trials Esmeralda considerably exceeded designed machinery power and speed. Steel hull was wood and copper-sheathed. Ship protection: 100.0m-long belt extended 0.6m above and 1.5m below lwl and was closed by 152mm bulkheads. Complete protective deck had 25mm thickness behind the belt and 51mm at the ends.
