Hoisting and repairs
With its 90-tonne hoist and numerous specialists (sail repair, rigging, engine serving, electronic, welding and machining, fibre-glass, etc) the marina boatyard, Varadero Puerto Calero offers a complete service. For more information contact the yard office: email@example.com Tel: +34 928 510158. (Office hours: 08:00 – 14:00 / 15:00 – 17:00)
The fuel dock, open every day from 08:30 – 19:30, sells diesel and lead-free petrol. Payment can be made by cash or credit card. If for any reason the attendant is not in the office, please call the Marina Office (VHF ch.09) for assistance.
Bunkers are available for yachts needing large quantities of fuel; contact the Marina Office for more information.
Camping Gaz canisters can be exchanged at the local fuel station.
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 fuel station in Macher.
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).
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.
Whilst there is still no chandlery open in the marina, please ask in the boatyard for help with sourcing parts and equipment. Opening hours: Monday – Friday: 08 – 13:00 / 15:00 – 18:00
