YACHT CHARTER DOURO RIVER WATER WAY PORTO Portugal.

The company owns a small Marina 'Douro Fluvina' at Ferradosa - Sao Joao da Pesqueira.

Our boats are 28ft Yachts ideal for a couple or a family with children.

You can rent a Sail Yacht with our chalets that are a few meters way from the private pontoons.

The chalets are very near the boats, and supply added comfort for your stay on the boats with larger toilets and kitchen.

My wife, 19 year old son and I had a fabulous 5 days / 4 nights chartering a motor yacht on the Dourou river. The scenery was stunning, the boat was small but clean, comfortable and well equipped. Sleeping on board was much more comfortable than any of us had expected and we slept well. Our time on the yacht...

We had three nights in paradise. Michelle, the skipper, did a great job taking us up stream to the Spanish boarder. We loved the nature, atmosphere, the silence and even with four people plus the skipper on the boat we had enough space to relax and enjoy the scenery. We will come back again and do the lower part of...

The train ride up the Douro from Porto is pretty magical but only just about prepares you for the sheer beauty of the river at Ferradosa where Jose and his business partner Antonio have created Dourovou: some charming wooden chalets and pool and pontoon for their 26’ MacGregors. Jose picked...

About the neighborhood
The Port vineyards cover approximately 250,000 hectares, of which 40,000 are under vine.They are planted along the steep, spectacular hills overlooking the River Douro and its tributaries. Generations of men and women have toiled tirelessly to build terraces into the rock face (an essential element for supporting the vines on these slopes) that have created an impressive landscape of unequaled beauty where hot summers are followed by warm autumns, wet winters and beautiful springs.

It is the region’s characteristic poor soil and uncompromising Mediterranean-like climate which produces one of the most sought after wines in the world, Port.

You can explore it on our boats and stop where ever you like, take tours by train along the valley, walk in the vineyards, visit farms and small towns...
