We took the morning sailing on the last day of our 1st time Madeira holiday and this was the highlight of the week for me. A truly outstanding feat of engineering & craftsmanship. We had spent the week seeing the vessel navigating in/out of the harbour thinking (quite wrongly) that this was a 'mackled-up' modern boat-based replica. It isn't; the builder/owners & their team who operate the vessel seemingly are just serious boaters & not marketing men. This ship is in my opinion one of ( if not THE) main attraction in Funchal; the fact that the crew ( who are actually sailors) don't make a big fuss & dance only enhanced the experience for me. We saw dolphins & enjoyed complimentary Madeira cake & wine on a flat-calm sea & bright sunny day. For me though it was all about this beautiful ship.
100 tonnes if solid handcrafted mahogany, not to be missed if you love proper, hand built, one off ships of excellence!
