I think David Pakes post is very informative and highlights some issues with Spanish marinas
. I don't believe any Spanish marinas
allow an owner to stay aboard the boat while in the boatyard (it is an insurance
issue). That said, I know of at least one that would tolerate it for a short period of time (maybe a month or so). Also some Spanish boatyards
don't allow owners to do their own work. However, many do, and even some that don't, will allow it provided your insurance
specifically covers your activity in the boatyard.
I would add Varadero Punta Europa
and Puerto Sherry
, both located in the town of El Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain. The town lies in the bay of Cadiz, and is well connected by rail, bus. The nearby town of Jerez has an airport
that has flights to Madrid, Barcelona
, and various cities in Germany
and the UK. The Jerez airport
is even accessible by rail from PSM. I have kept my boat in both of these boatyards
, and can provide more detailed info if desired (send me a PM).
Also, while the internet
is great, I find that unadvertised sales are frequently available, and rates can be negotiated in person.
David Pakes-In which boatyard (the name of the boatyard) is your boat?
