For some time now, it has become apparent that there is a need for a management service of private boats on behalf of semi-residents and annual visitors to Corfu. By semi residents we refer to many Greeks and foreign nationals who own a second home on Corfu, and generally reside there for varying periods of time, mostly during the summer months. Whilst property management has long been established on the island, boat management facilities to store, clean, care for and prepare motor boats, for these semi residents, are few and far between. There are also a number of annual visitors to the island, who do not own property but own motor- boats for use whilst on their vacation.
What essentially we offer is a facility to safely store these motorboats and their equipment in the owners’ absence. We also offer to have boats fully serviced and ready for use on the arrival of the owners and remove boats from the sea and relocate them to storage on the owners’ departure. Obviously the biggest advantage to owners of such a service is the ability to maximize the use of their motorboats during their stay on the island, and to avoid the loss of the first few days of holiday with troublesome engines, cleaning and launching. There are also several auxiliary services that we can offer and they are listed in detail below.
Where are we?
Our boat yard is located at Votana, behind Avlaki Corfu, on the road between Agios Stefanos and Kassiopi. The location is conveniently central being equidistant to the sheltered harbours of Agni, Nissaki, Kouloura, Agios Stefanos and Kassiopi.
Why own you owne boat in Corfu?
The main advantage of owning your own boat rather than renting one is that you are not restricted to boat rental laws. You can use your boat any time you like, even at night (providing you have the correct lighting) and you are not restricted in how far you can travel (other than safety, weather, boat limitations and equipment will allow). Just think how lovely it would be to visit Corfu Town, do your grocery shopping or visit your favourite taverna for your evening meal all by boat, avoiding the stressful experience of driving on the Corfiot roads in high season! If you are already a boat owner in the UK, but spend time in Corfu every year, it might be worth considering bringing your boat out here permanently. Storage fees are generally cheaper and the weather definitely better ensuring maximum use of your boat.
