{"id":41,"name":"Charter","remember_token":null,"created_at":null,"updated_at":null} Kiriacoulis Sailing (Kalamaki-Alimos )
Athens, Greece
I also used Kiriacoulis and had to wait several hours to get on the boat due to battery issues. Two days later while at sea the engine would not start due to battery issues so I had to sail into the marina with no engine, in good weather this is doable but in bad weather could be unnecessarily dangerous. This is awful maintenance.
{"id":41,"name":"Charter","remember_token":null,"created_at":null,"updated_at":null} Kiriacoulis Sailing (Kalamaki-Alimos )
Athens, Greece
Never ever use this company. They clearly operate a fix on fail policy with regard to maintenance - not ideal on a charter yacht. Many non - working gauges, twisted, heavily salted lines, a broken swim ladder and the piéce de resistance, a sea cock with metal fatigue, opening up a 50mm hole below the water in a F6-7. No apology from Kiriacoulis - just a desperate panic to fix the hole for the following day's charter party. Use at your own risk.
Greece (Country):
After 12 years sailing the Greek Islands I continue to be amazed. Greece isn't going backward, facilities both on and off the water are becoming more welcoming and sophisticated year on year. The hospitality of the Greek people is second to none, along with excellent food and improved wine and beer choices. The islands are abundant with secluded coves of unbelievable clear water. History, culture, charm and sunshine. Greece has it all!
