A galleon with these dimensions cannot be 51.5 zira. I developed a formula to determine the measure of Ottoman galleons over their zira value. According to this calculation, this galleon, which is said to be Peleeng-i Bahri, is 53.5 zira long.

Tonaj Keel (ZIRA) = ((L-(W*3/5))*0,3048)/0,758

The dimensions in the plans of the galleon: 165’ 4” x 53’ 6” x 18’ 10”

L (Deck Length): 165,33 feet
W (Deck Width): 53,5 feet

Tonaj Keel (ZIRA) = ((165,33-(53,5*3/5))*0,3048)/0,758 = 53,57 Zira.
