The Marco Polo

Magnificent sailing ships have dominated our oceans for centuries and still fascinate many people today. Today’s Marco Polo Ibiza was built in the Netherlands in 1953. With its two masts, the historic sailing ship consists of a proud 80 tons of steel.

In the 90s, the sailing ship was transferred to Ibiza, where it was used as a charter ship. In 2006, the sailing ship was taken over by us and baptised Marco Polo Ibiza.

Since Ibiza used to be a pirate island, it was obvious to equip the historic sailing ship with 100 square metres of black sails and half a pirate head on the main sail. Half a pirate head does not count as a pirate flag, because according to a law that still applies to some port cities in the southern Mediterranean today, ships with a pirate flag are not allowed to dock in all ports.

Desde 2006, hemos estado navegando a toda velocidad a lo largo de las costas de Ibiza y Formentera cada año y nuestros huéspedes experimentan una sensación de pirata inolvidable y por lo general no quieren bajar del barco.
