- used for the coastal trade of fruit, salt and other goods, especially in the Mediterranean and on the African north and west coasts.
- purchased in very poor condition in 1999 by the City of Torrevieja in Milford Haven/GBR to restore the ship and use her as an ambassador for the city and to commemorate the maritime history surrounding this type of ships.
- 2005-2008 first restoration work, which could not be continued until the Nao Victoria Foundation 2020 took over the coordination and the works were completed at the shipyard of Punta Umbría, Huelva/SPA.
- since then visits to various port cities and participation in sailing festivals, including the Maritime Days in Bremerhaven 2021.
