An accident occurred on Saturday morning in front of La Concha beach on the island of Los Lobos, which involved a passenger ship, El Majorero, that remained half-sunk in that area.

On Monday morning, the Cabildo de Fuerteventura and the City Council of La Oliva received the material they required to be able to carry out the maneuver to transfer the boat from the Los Lobos to the Port of Corralejo. This material is provided by the Government of the Canary Islands and arrived in Fuerteventura through the helicopter of the  Emergency and Rescue Group (GES).

The arrival of the material will make it possible to give greater buoyancy and security to the ship during the transfer. With these safety elements already in Fuerteventura, we will wait for the best possible moment to start the maneuver, taking into account the navigability conditions of the sea.

This transfer operation has been coordinated by the Cabildo, La Oliva City Council, General State Administration and Government of the Canary Islands. The ship will be towed by Salvamento Marítimo, from an area near the Lobos dock to the Port of Corralejo, where Puertos Canarios has set up a docking area.
