Delivery Journey from Lisbon to Vilamoura

Pre-Departure Preparation

Before embarking on our journey from Lisbon to Vilamoura with a 72-foot motor yacht, our team at Timeless Moments conducted thorough pre-departure preparations to ensure a safe and smooth voyage.

Safety Checks

We started with comprehensive safety checks on the yacht:

  • Hull and Deck Inspection: Examined for any damage or wear.
  • Engine and Mechanical Systems: Checked engines, generators, fuel systems, and hydraulics.
  • Electrical Systems: Tested navigation lights, communication devices, and onboard electronics.
  • Safety Equipment: Verified life jackets, lifeboats, fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and emergency flares were in place and in good condition.
  • Provisioning: Stocked the yacht with necessary supplies, including food, water, and fuel, ensuring redundancy for critical items.

Navigation Planning

Our navigation planning involved several key steps:

  • Weather Forecast: Reviewed weather conditions for the entire route to avoid adverse weather.
  • Route Mapping: Charted a course considering fuel stops, overnight stays, and potential hazards.
  • Fuel Calculation: Calculated fuel consumption at an average speed of 18 knots to determine necessary refueling points.
  • Port Arrangements: Contacted marinas in advance to secure berths for overnight stays and refueling.

The Journey

Day 1: Lisbon to Sines (Approximately 50 nautical miles)

We departed from Lisbon Marina early in the morning. The first leg of our journey was deliberately kept short to allow us to thoroughly test all systems under actual cruising conditions. The yacht cruised smoothly along the beautiful Portuguese coastline, offering stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Overnight Stop: We reached Sines Marina by late afternoon. After securing the yacht, we conducted a thorough inspection to ensure all systems were functioning optimally. This included checking the engines, navigation systems, and onboard amenities. Satisfied with the performance, we enjoyed a relaxing evening exploring the charming coastal town of Sines, known for its historic significance and beautiful beaches.

Fuel Stop: Refueled at Sines Marina to ensure we had enough fuel for the next leg.

Day 2: Sines to Vilamoura (Approximately 130 nautical miles)

Having confirmed that all systems were in excellent working order, we embarked on the second and final leg of our journey. Leaving Sines behind, we continued our cruise southwards, enjoying the calm and clear waters of the Atlantic.

Route Highlights:

  • Sagres Point: Passed by the famous Sagres Point, where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean. The dramatic cliffs and historic lighthouse provided a scenic backdrop.
  • Lagos: Cruised past the picturesque port of Lagos, known for its stunning cliffs and vibrant culture.
  • Albufeira: As we neared Vilamoura, we passed by the lively town of Albufeira, famous for its beautiful beaches and bustling marina.

Arrival in Vilamoura: By early evening, we arrived at Vilamoura Marina. After docking, we conducted a final systems check to ensure everything was in perfect condition after the journey. We celebrated the successful completion of the delivery with a wonderful meal at one of Vilamoura's renowned waterfront restaurants.

This two-day voyage from Lisbon to Vilamoura highlighted the meticulous planning and professional execution by our team.
