HOISTING AND REPAIRS

Marina Lanzarote’s large boatyard employing both a 820-tonne and a 100-tonne travel hoist is now open. The larger of the two hoisting slip has a width of 14.5m for large multihulls and the yard features two deep keel pits for facilitating working ashore. There are numerous specialists (sail repair, rigging, engine servicing, electronic, welding and machining, fibre-glass, etc) based either in Marina Lanzarote or Puerto Calero. For more information please visit our section on Shipyard services or contact the yard office: varadero@marinalanzarote.com Tel: +34 605 812289.

FUEL

The fuel dock is unfortunately not now due to be installed until next year. Puerto Calero offers a fuelling service, 9nm south along the coast with opening hours from 8.00 – 19:30 every day. If for any reason the attendant is not on the pontoon, please call on VHF ch.09 for service. Payment can be made in cash or by credit card.
Bunkers can be arranged for yachts needing large quantities of fuel; please contact the Marina Office for more information.

GAS

Camping Gaz canisters can be exchanged at the local fuel station. New canisters can be purchased at the Cofradía chandlery next to the fishing dock.

NuB is the name of the most commonly-used domestic gas in the Canaries. These can be exchanged or purchased from a good number of fuel stations, the nearest one being the local DISA garage opposite Ikea & Lidl on the Avenida Mármoles.

Throughout the Canary Islands, domestic gas bottles are filled with butane and not propane. Recent safety measures in filling depots have meant that only Lanzarote and Fuerteventura offer a service for filling those with a Calor Gas blue butane or orange propane fitting; a number of US and Scandinavian bottles with a left-hand feminine fitting and French Jumbo bottles. These can either be taken directly to the DISA depot (open weekdays until 3pm) or left with the reception staff who will organise a collection and refill service. (NB. Please allow 2 days for this).

GUARDIANAGE

The boatyard offers a guardianage service for those who wish to have cleaning / maintenance work carried out in their absence. Please contact the yard for more information.

CHANDLERS

The “Lava Charter Tienda Náutica” chandlery can be found next to the Marina Office with weekly morning and afternoon opening hours, stocking Garmin, Vetus, Lewmar, Würth, Hempel , Imray, Johnson and general accessories. The surrounding area of Puerto Naos is well equipped for chandleries and various hardware and specialist shops. Please ask in the Marina Office for advice.
