 Horta - Repair Facilities

Boatyards

There is a 17-ton travelift and a crane can be hired in an emergency to lift a yacht on to the main wharf. A new and much larger ramp has been built in the commercial harbour.

Repair facilities are constantly improving, but still only minor repairs can be undertaken locally.

Laundry service here is provided by Mr Santos and his wife Rosa Maria. He collects and delivers from the marina most days. Contact details LAVANDARIA DA ROSA - Mobile: 962821723. Excellent service and much easier than walking the whole length of the marina.

Report by RCC Pilotage Foundation:
WARNING: We had some very useful insight from Tony Dudman regarding anchoring in the Azores. Having been told by the marineiro ashore in Horta to anchor until the office opened, they anchored with a tripping line but later couldn't get the anchor up. Another boat abeam also had problems freeing themselves and a couple ashore said they too had got snagged the day before. They eventually needed a diver to release them, who informed them that patch of the harbour had disused anchors and chain left over from ship manoeuvres. Be careful or avoid anchoring in this area.
