Canary Islands: Las Palmas Marina Boatyard now Closed

Las Palmas Marina Boatyard (Varadero Muelle Deportivo) has now closed and removed all its services and travelift. It is very unlikely that any boatyard facility in the marina will be available before 2012.

The next closest usable travelift is at Taliarte industrial marina about 20kms from Las Palmas, although this is a bit rough and ready. The Real Club Nautico (next to the Muelle Deportivo) has a travelift but this is for private club use only and NOT to be relied on by visiting yachts. Other marinas in the Canaries provide good alternatives, including (but not limited to): Pasito Blanco, Mogan and Puerto Rico in Gran Canaria, as well as Marina Rubicon and Puerto Calero in Lanzarote.

Further Updates for Las Palmas Muelle Deportivo:
Magnetic cards are now being used for pontoon gates. These require a 12€ deposit and are available from marina reception. Twenty two CCTV cameras have now been installed and are operational, which should hopefully improve the security situation in the marina. The ATM machine in the marina has been removed - therefore the closest one is over the road at the southern end of the marina, opposite the police station.

Our thanks to Nick Martin of the ARC for these updates
