Far de Formentera is a llagut with a mainsail and a jib. It is a type of craft traditionally used for fishing on the island of Majorca. It was originally owned by a family from Sa Pobla (Majorca), and in 1991 it was given to the El Far consortium so it could be restored, through the Barcelona fes-te a la mar association. It is 11.10 meters long, has a beam of 3.40 meters and 84 m2 of sails. It was recently added to the fleet of the Maritime Museum of Barcelona.
