A new GBP 5 million vessel, dubbed the “ultimate floating beach club style cruise ship experience” was launched ahead of 2019 Ibiza clubbing season. The liner, named Funchal, is sheltered in a transformed former presidential yacht that served the president of Portugal and is currently undergoing a GBP 4 million refurbishment.

Once complete, the new venture of Signature Living will provide 632 beds including options for sea rooms, single rooms, double rooms, and a plush presidential suite sleeping up to 4 passengers. The largest suites accommodate 16 travelers in a deluxe party room that offers a private deck with a hot tub, and breakfast. 

The voyages will run from August through October and are due to moor at Ibiza Town Port.
