On the 05 December 2018 the FUNCHAL was sold at auction for 3.1 million to the UK based hotel group Signature Living although by all accounts no payment was actually made.

Although Signature Living proposed to use the former FUNCHAL as a party boat based in Ibiza they later changed their plans to refurbish her as a Hotel Ship and have her berthed in a UK port.

Obviously these plans have never materialised and the FUNCHAL remains laid up in Lisbon.

I wonder what the future holds for the FUNCHAL?

I can't honestly see her returning to commercial service as a cruise ship but I do hope that she doesn't end up on the beaches of Aliaga in Turkey or Alang in India.
