This company provides the LPG stove and 6 gallon water heater for the author's boat, the author has
no problem with the stove however the water heater has a propensity to leak. It should be noted that
Seaward has an advertisement in the latest issue of the ISLAND PACKET NEWSLETTER touting
their customer support and "We will handle you call with the best customer service the industry has to
offer." This is contrary to the author's experience with this company, there was no response at all to
the author's request for help with a leaky water heater, request was simply ignored. Fortunately, the
author was able to work out the problem without their help. Unfortunately, we are stuck with this
company since the unit fits in a very tight area and a replacement that will install in this area has not

The last e-mail correspondence we had from the marina was that the new name is Desarrollo
Marina Mazatlan however, the website as listed above will link to the marina, we could find no
website or e-mail for the new name.
Contact should be on channel 16 and then you will be directed to channel 18 for slip assignment.
The marina has 197 slips from 25 to 120 feet in length with water, power, check in and out with
the authorities, fuel, laundry, telephone, haulout, pumpout, fax and dock boxes. Rates change
from time to time, rate for the author's 35' boat was about $315.00, rates for slips without power
are somewhat less.
This marina is well managed and is highly recommended, cruisers are most welcomed. The marina
sponsors social activities for various USA holidays as well as cocktail parties and other social
activities from time to time. Forget El Cid Marina. However, for those that keep the dinghy
launched, there is a small but well stocked mercado near the office of El Cid Marina, a short
dinghy ride away.
Marina El Cid
Circuito Campeadora No. 1
Altos Fracc. El Cid
Telephone 13-33-33 ext. 411
As indicated in the start page, El Cid is for the most part a hotel and time share complex, the
marina is an adjunct and is operated accordingly. In the google.com search engine, page after
page describes the hotel but few if any give information on the marina. However, there are some
nice photos depicting the marina and Marina Mazatlan in the background.
Cruisers as a group, tend to avoid this marina if possible, if Marina Mazatlan is full or closed, as in
the case a year or so ago, then it should be given some consideration. The author was not
particularly impressed with this marina, after about a three week trip home, the author returned to
find that his boat was rubbing and banging against another boat that had been squeezed into the
double slip by marina personnel, each time a power boat went by in the nearby channel there was
an impact and collision between the two boats. When the author returned the occupant of the other
boat complained that the author's boat was rubbing against his boat. Front office personnel tend to
regard slip tenants as a nuisance and as a matter of fact, when the author checked out of this
marina on January 6, 2002, he carefully arrived at the time of office opening but was informed by
the lady at the front desk to come back in about an hour since she had to do her nails.
The marina does have some redeeming features, there is a nice restaurant and bar, it is close
proximity to bus service to town, a laundry and well stocked mercado are nearby, fuel dock and
shower are nearby and the marina is well maintained and in good order with 24 hour security. So
therefor, if a cruiser can stomach the front office people, and do not mind rubbing elbows with
tourist, time share buyers and such nerds as well as sky high prices, he can give the marina some
consideration. In regards to prices, the author was charged $425.00 U.S. for his 35' boat plus $50
for electricity, even for the time he was absent from the marina with the power off. Marina
personnel confided that when the marina received their electric bill, it was divided by the number
of slips and the answer was doubled thus being the electric bill.

This marina is part of the Almar Marinas chain, an American owned chain, for specific
information, the website as listed above has links to the Marina Cabo San Lucas site which is quite
informative. Both management and staff do an excellent job, the author has no problems with
either. The problem that everyone has with this marina is the cost, but this is due to the lack of
competition, as the old adage states, "business is business." Sooner or later there will be other
slips available for some relief. Viva Escalara Nautica.

Home of the renowned Ninety Day Yacht Club. The author has very little knowledge of this
entity, something to do with the California franchise tax board and the legal avoidance of sales
taxes on recently purchased boats.
Regardless, and the "eye popping" slip rates as listed above not withstanding, this marina is well
managed, customer contact and service excellent, all presided over by the officious Fito, manager.

Slips in this marina are "indifferent" for th lack of a suitable description, they are all of wooden
construction, some are in very good condition while some appear to be ready to float out to sea.
The front office is reminiscent of the DMV some years back until the public became so outraged
the top management was changed and the situation was corrected.
Since tenants in this marina are not residents of the city of Long Beach for the most part, they
have little political pull with the Long Beach City Council, so the situation continues.
The above notwithstanding, the marina has some strong points, downtown Long Beach is a nice
area and in particular, Alamitos Bay located a few miles east. Further, the marina is slated to be
rebuilt which will make it even nicer despite a rent increase slated as well. All in all, you can do
worse if you can hold your nose long enough around the front office.
For the "welcoming packet" go into the website as listed above and download in PDF format this
document, it is breathtaking. It is all self explanatory however, the reader should take note the
$75.00 administrative fee which is non-refundable nor does it apply to the slip rent but only
applicable if there is a waiting list for your size boat. There is a waiting list for 35' boats and above
the last time the author checked. There are some redeeming features other than listed above, slip
fees are more economical than other marinas in the area, $328.00 for the author's 35' boat with a 3

Progress has caught and passed this marina, they have considerably more 30' slips that they can
rent, very few 30' and below boats are being built. As a consequence, the marina has rows of
empty 30' slips so if a thoughtful sailor can convince management that his boat is 30' or less he
could obtain a slip. Otherwise, he gets on the waiting list.

For the pass five to six years or so, this marina was supposed to be rebuilt, considering the slip
situation now in Southern California, they should very well get on with it. Since the marinas are
full or near full and interest rates are low, they could not wish for a better time to rebuild. Further,
they are in a prime area with space for a lot of slips.
One cannot complain of the rates, the author for his 35' boat is being charged an "eye popping"
$245.00 but there are problems. Maintenance is kept to a minimum due to the rebuilding plans,
there is not enough electricity to power the microwave or heater but the transistor radio can be
powered. Otherwise $245.00 is a bargain if you are not a liveboard and you can hold your nose
