Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Arrecife: Marina Lanzarote is officially open

By Marina Lanzarote — last modified Aug 15, 2015 09:02 PM
Crowds flocked to Marina Lanzarote for the grand opening last Saturday, where amidst an atmosphere of jubilation and elation, local and regional public officials led by Paulino Rivero, President of the Canarian Government lauded Mr. Jose Calero's most impressive achievement to date.

Recalling Lanzarote’s famous artist Cesar Manrique, Mr Rivero described the tremendous importance of individuals who possessed the singular capacity to advance tourist development based around the island’s natural resources in such an effective, respectful and exceptional manner. The Caleros’ courage, vision and resolute determination in difficult times had successfully brought about the capital city's most important investment project, a much needed facelift for Arrecife’s historic port, implying significant employment opportunities for the island.

The new shipyard with its 820 tonne lift provides an essential service for the both the local tourist and commercial fleets and an easy facility for superyachts needing technical assistance.

Shops and restaurants, many of them local companies, opened their doors to greet an enthusiastic public with numerous tempting offers. Over the next couple of months, many more are set to join them, providing a superb range of different types of cuisine including well-known island favourites such as Lilium and Maxi Vidal’s (Amura) new restaurant, Local 24.

The new 400-berth marina was packed with boats where this secure and well placed location has proved extraordinarily popular with visiting yachts, amongst those many liveaboards who have patiently and loyally stood by to watch the two year creation of the project. Autumn is the busiest season for boating traffic in the Canaries and the numerous daily visitors currently feature many event participants such as those preparing for Jimmy Cornell's upcoming Atlantic Odyssey.

One of the most spectacular vessels in the marina was a new spectacular Baltic racing yacht whose personal and professional crew had recently taken advantage of October's beautifully calm weather to complete a four day tour of the island's anchorages. Surprised and gratified by their findings, Capt. Clive walker said that he was amazed that Lanzarote was not better known.

The marina buzzed with well-wishers parading along the 500m-long waterfront and musical festivities continued long into the night. Marina Lanzarote is set now to receive some major sailing events over the next twelve months starting with the Atlantic Odyssey in November, the Panerai Transat Classique in January and the Mini Transat arriving late September, 2015.

The Marina Lanzarote is very new, the marineros are quick, very friendly and helpfull, the office is also very friendly and helpful in every question you have. Speaking different languages, spanish, english, german and french. The price for a 16 m boat is about 33 Euros per day includes electricity and water and tax. You will get 10% for beeing member in Transocean, Kreutzer and other clubs. Its very windy in the month of july and august, but the swimmingpontoons are not so difficult to come along. Callon channel 9 to inform the Marina. When entering the boyed channel, 4m are garanted.
Arrecife has a lot of good restaurants and Tapas Bars not far away, also the marina you find very good ones, a bakery, a little fruitmarket on saturday at the church.Some chandlers for nautical stuff near the marina. 3 km from the marina is IKEA, a big electronic shop and a LIDL. You can reach them by car, hirering in the marina, or walking. The Hyperdino and the Mercadona supermarcets will bring your stuff to the Marina, if it is more than 60 Euros. To stay in this marina is nice and you can explore the nice and interesting island with the car, for example visiting the houses of Cresar Manrique and the national Parque Timanfaya and the wonderful beaches at Papagayo.
We had a realy good experience with Marco Menozzi, a Raymarine specialist,
