"Vigo ( VEE-goh, Galician: [ˈbiɣʊ], locally [ˈbiħʊ], Spanish: [ˈbiɣo]) is a city and municipality in the province of Pontevedra, within the autonomous community of Galicia, Spain. Located in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula, it sits on the southern shore of an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean, the Ria de Vigo, the southernmost of the so-called Rías Baixas.

The municipality, with an area of 109.06 km2 (42.11 sq mi) and a population of 295,364 in 2019 including rural parishes, is the most populous municipality in Galicia. The area of the municipality includes the Cíes Islands, part of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia National Park.

Vigo is one of the region's primary economic agents, owing to the French Stellantis Vigo Plant and to its port. Close to the Portugal–Spain border, Vigo is part of the Galicia–North Portugal Euroregion. The European Fisheries Control Agency is headquartered in Vigo." Wikipedia

Davila Sport Harbour

I have a slip here. I am not sure what short term prices are like. The entire Marina and yard are fenced. The Toilet and shower facilities are open 24 hours. There is a nice restaurant inside the Marina. There is plenty of parking. The Yard is full service and has lift, maintenance, paint, installation and repair services. The Marina is located on a spit called Bouzas, which is fully dedicated to marine services. There are several restaurants and chandlers about 1 mile away.
