Try asking your question over at the Anything Sailing Forum. The owner of the forum (and very frequent poster) is Portuguese and sails out of Cascais:

Re: Haulout in Spain/Portugal

i just got back from a delivery to Ribadeo on the north coast of spain,and had a quick look at the boatyard,which has a 40 ton travel lift,rates were reasonable,about 1000 euros for 6 months,and a lift was 200 euro aprox.

nice clean facility,beautiful location,but not sure if living on board is allowed,though apartments during the winter are cheap to rent,300-400 a month.

the marina was also very cheap 56 euros for the week for an 8meter yacht
latest project

I used Gelves. Work on boat was allowed. Winter was cold.

Re: Haulout in Spain/Portugal

There is a large boatyard on the Tejo River opposite from Lisboa. Sorry I can't remember the name.
Cascais would probably be expensive for winter storage. The space is mostly controlled by the shops in what they call the Technical Building and I suspect DIY opportunities would be limited.
Sopromar yard in Lagos does allow DIY (or did in 2007) and was fairly reasonable.

Portimao is good... lifted there a couple of times to work on boats.
Lots of services and a couple of chandlers... live aboard no worries

Povoa de Varsim is very cheap.
Close to Oporto.
Many people live aboard and DIY fixing.
