The Santa Maria Manuela was originally built as a fishing vessel to fish around New Foundland for cod, traditionally a popular dish in Portugal. Together with other ships of the same type, they formed a large fishing fleet. In 2010, the ship was purchased by the current owner and rebuilt in the record time of 62 working days into a new construction, intended for sailing with guests / trainees. It has become a civilian training ship that can be regularly seen at major Sail events. The original hull has been preserved, the inside has been completely renewed with very comfortable accommodations. With a deck area of more than 50 square meters and below deck different spaces, the Santa Maria Manuela is actually suitable for just about every conceivable event on a ship. A unique ship with excellent conditions. Ideal to enjoy the SAIL spectacle.
