The 40-meter traditional wooden vessel from Qatar 'Al Mubaraki' docked late Sunday at the old port of the Greek island of Corfu.

The vessel, a traditional wooden sailboat with a 16-member crew, will afterward visit Albania, Croatia and finally Italy where it will be the final stop of its fourth-month journey that includes stops in a total of 11 ports among them the Greek ports of Thessaloniki, Piraeus and Mykonos.

According to ANA sources, the former emir of Qatar Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani is on Corfu from Sunday afternoon as he visits Corfu almost every year. 

The ship will remain at the port of Corfu until Tuesday when it will depart for Albania and will remain open to visitors.
