Monaco19: Canaries promote yacht visits

Sep 29, 2019 by Triton Staff

Tourism officials and marina executives from the Canary Islands were at the Monaco Yacht Show this week to promote a new cruising destination for superyachts in Lanzarote, the northern and easternmost of the islands in the chain. 

Located just off the north African coast and about 600 miles (1,000km) from Spain, Lanzarote is en route from Europe to the Caribbean and boasts year-round sunshine, volcanic landscapes, local vineyards  and “exhilarating” water sports conditions for wind and kite surfers. 

Lanzarote Superyacht Destination have invested in its superyacht services and shipyard facilities to accommodate superyachts up to 110m with long- and short-term berthing available.

Three established luxury marinas provide a total of 34 superyacht berths. And a recently upgraded shipyard now has hoisting facilities that include an 820-tonne travel lift, over 20,000 square meters of yard area, two deep-keel pits and a range of specialist services, according to a press release. 

In 2015, Lanzarote received its Biosphere Responsible Tourism certification as a fully sustainable destination.
