We're in Portugal
In 2020 the largest sailing school in Northern Portugal - BB Douro, in the beautiful coastal city of Porto got in contact with us. They were on a sustainability drive and they chose Ecoworks along with many other products like installing a Seabin and taking on a number of initiatives. As part of this drive, BB Douro advocated for their local chandlery - Ondastar, to stock our products which makes them our first stockist in Portugal.
With a workshop and boat warehouse in Aveleda near Porto and a chandlery, workshop, showroom and office in Douro Marina alongside BB Douro, Ondatsar is more than just a chandlery. They offer full service workshops for general boat and engine maintenance including painting, upholstery and carpentry and are official dealers for Honda Marine, Invictus boats, Quicksilver and Raymarine to name a few.
With 300 berths for yachts up to 50metres, Douro Marina is the largest infrastructure for recreational boating between Cascais and Galicia and acts as a staging point for navigators in transit on the West Coast and Atlantic. Situated on the South Bank of the River Douro,the marina is beautifully situated between the famous da Ribeira de Gaia and from the historic centre of Porto.
Our mission is to provide the world with sustainable options to care for yachts so we’re excited to be launching in yet another country, providing Ecoworks to local sailors and visiting Ecoworks customers alike.
As we write this Yacht Works in Cascais has also just become a stockist of Ecoworks Marine and will soon have our full range available in their chandlery also, making Ecoworks Marine more available across Portugal.
More on our future in Portugal is coming soon.
