Why Lanzarote has become a popular superyacht destination + Party invitation during MYS 2019

in

Year round sunshine, exotic landscapes and exhilarating water sports conditions are not the only reasons to visit Lanzarote Superyacht Destination.

We are perfectly placed en route from Europe to the Caribbean as the closest land to the Atlantic crossing. Three luxury marinas and the Tourism board have partnered to form Lanzarote Superyacht Destination following an extension to the superyacht services and shipyard facilities on the island meaning we can now accommodate superyachts up to 110 metres.

Long and short term berthing is now available and our experienced shipyard can accept extensive refits and repairs’, meaning the island is already earning a solid reputation within the yachting community.

Always a popular destination for the sailing community who like to take a break and source provisions here before sailing to America or the Caribbean, Lanzarote is celebrated for the near perfect year round climate and water sports conditions as well as having excellent tax benefits.  

Three established luxury marinas each with its own personality and selection of world-class restaurants, bars and international stores provide a total of 1368 berths and 34 convenient superyacht berths. .

The recently upgraded shipyard now has hoisting facilities that include a giant 820-tonne travel lift, over 20,000m² of yard area, two deep keel pits and a range of specialist services.

In 2015 Lanzarote was the first destination to receive Biosphere Responsible Tourism certification as a fully sustainable destination. This eco-friendly culture is ingrained into daily life here on the island and we will be offering sustainable alternatives to most throw away items the superyachts may request. Provisioning will be coordinated to use minimal packaging, and for those yachts staying a while for a refit or repair, there is no better place to research and find materials that sit well with your own green policies.

Lanzarote has a gentle and temperate year-round climate, protected from major weather systems, making access for yachts easy throughout the year. The small amount of annual rainfall brings a welcome advantage for completing external painting or lengthy varnishing jobs, and offers ideal conditions for experiencing some of the curated superyacht island experiences now available.

Visiting the unique national parks full of extinct volcanoes should be high on every crew-member’s to do list, as well as enjoying some of the best windsurfing and kitesurfing conditions in the world. If shopping at Dolce and Gabbana or Gucci without leaving the marina is more interesting, or having your own private tour of the most unusual vineyards you will ever have the pleasure of visiting, don’t worry. We have you covered.

The foodies amongst you will find Spanish and South American dishes intertwined with traditional berber recipes and elegant Mediterranean flavours.

Bib Gourmand restaurants blend world cuisine with traditional favourites that focus on locally sourced, organic ingredients and deliver simple dishes that are all about the taste and less about the ceremony.

Our local white wine is truly outstanding and really must be tasted. The volcanic soil brings a uniquely fertile taste and the island has a number of hugely successful vineyards. The local cheeses compliment this wonderfully and are a delicacy in their own right. Delicious craft beers are a recent development with several emerging breweries creating beers each with their own personalities.

Lanzarote Superyacht Destination will be officially launched at the Monaco Yacht Show this year where we will be sharing delicious Lanzarote wines and cheese, complimented with music played by world class DJs. The celebration starts at 17:00 on Thursday 26th September at booth DS1. See you there!
