Acquired in 2016 by Recheio Cash&Carry, a Company belonging to the Jerónimo Martins Group, “Santa Maria Manuela”, the famous and iconic ship is still being visited every year by thousands of people, in Portugal and in international ports, who step up on deck to listen to the resident crew tell old stories, some of resistance, courage and resilience. In 2017 “Santa Maria Manuela” is celebrating its eightieth birthday and will continue to sail and pay homage to the fishermen who, for decades, worked on the ship considered to be one of the most important Portuguese cod-fishing vessels, a member of the famous White Fleet (Frota Branca). This unique sailing ship has been totally renovated and has excellent conditions for ocean journeys, expeditions and nautical experiences. It is also prepared for conferences, parties and events.
