Have not found a name by the steamboat depict on the stamp, only a maxi card but not a name is visible, the Portuguese Post gives the following by the stamp.

Steamboats that connected the city of Funchal with other areas of the coast, was carried out first by sail and paddle-boats known as «carreireiros» and later by small motorboats and/or small steam-boats, some left still in the memory of the older folks like the VICTORIA BUTIO AND GAVIÄO.
