Salut les Heossiens, J’ai passe une semaine en novembre 2017 au chantier de «Varadero de Xufre» (www.xufre.es), sur la petite Ile de «Ila de Arousa» en Galice espagnole, et je voulais partager avec vous cette experience, en pensant que certains Heossiens pourraient avoir besoin d’un chantier sur la route vers les Canaries et la Mediterranee. Il s’agit d’un port a sec...

Many thanks to all the staff at Varadoiro do Xufre. Shortly after launching on a Friday we discovered a leaking prop shaft seal. Twenty minutes later we were in the slings and out of the water. By 17.00 we had identified the seal and thanks to Nito a replacement was ordered from the supplier and arrangements made to leave it at Baiona Yacht club for us to collect on Saturday morning. Thanks...

There has for the last six years been a much acclaimed boatyard, Varadoiro do Xufre (the yard’s tall shed and tower crane are conspicuous from seaward). There is 3m at LAT all the way in to the yard’s pontoon (see plan). A family business, the level of service is outstanding – they even have a car available for customers’ (self drive) use. Porto O Xufre, Isla de Arosa. This harbour is...

Comment organiser le refit total de notre trawler de 18m, et 60 tonnes sans tomber dans le piège de certains chantiers? Après quelques recherches et sur la recommandation d’amis irlandais, nous avons découvert Vdx. Je ne saurai trop recommander ce chantier familial et très professionnel. Nito et son fils Alex font tout leur possible pour rendre ce temps de travail et de refit agréable....

But without doubt what really elevates Varadoiro do Xufre from other yards i have used is the pervasive attitude of integrity from the staff, both in the consciously high quality work and the strikingly fair invoicing which i am pleased to say is completely free of the unscrupulous profiteering vessel owners too often become victims of when in the grip of repair facilities. Here you will get...

Peter and William just having the time of our lives. This is what makes sailing enjoyable and I never thought I would say this of a boatyard. The highest approval and the reasons. Large 180 ton lift no need to remove forestay or backstay large beam vessels not getting squeezed. The high standard of cleaness of yard and facilities. Low cost for hauling and standing time. Fair charging for...

a good place for repair and maintenance, lifting in and out (up to 8 meters broad) and overwintering in general. All for very attractive prices (prices for overwintering a catamaran is more than half cheaper compared with the rest of Spain/Portugal). Beside that it is a not to big familyrun wharf/marina where the owner and his son are making you feel at home, are professional (sailors...

The owner was a live aboard for five years in his own boat around the Mediterranean and spotted the need for much needed facilities at home. His personal experience shows in the way that he runs the business. All services are available; you can do your own maintenance, hire their tools and machinery and even share in the large drums of antifouling thus at lower cost or get their very...
