Pirate Ship Ibiza
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 1913. With its two masts, the historic sailing ship is made 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 we took over the sailing ship and christened it Marco Polo Ibiza. Since Ibiza used to be a pirate island, it seemed obvious to equip the historic sailing ship with 100sqm black sails and half a pirate head on the main sail. Half a pirate's head does not count as a pirate flag, because according to a law that still applies to some port cities in the southern Mediterranean, ships with a pirate flag are not allowed to moor in all ports. Every year since 2006 we have been sailing ahead along the coasts of Ibiza and Formentera and our guests experience an unforgettable pirate feeling and usually do not want to get off the boat anymore.
