Setting the standards of the new era
Planaco yacht yard has been known to Greek and foreign yachtsmen for over 30 years. Just 11 nautical miles from Piraeus, on the island of Aegina, Planaco was always the choice of yachting people for wintering, maintenance, refit and repairs of their vessels.
Today, Planaco yacht yard has turned the pages of the company’ s history. Planaco SA enters a new era of evolution and development, under the new ownership of the large public group of Folli Follie, as well as under a new efficient and service minded management. The vision is the creation of a modern technological “jewel” with European specifications, at the service of the contemporary yachtsman.
The yard is extended over 35.000 sq. m. configured land, with an up to date ecological system, out of which around 1.000 sq. m. is an indoor space for special works on boats under environmentally controlled area. There are two piers serving two systems for launching, one by power trailer for up to 60 tons, and one synchro lift for up to 250 tons. And we are just at the beginning. At present, work is already in progress for a third jetty, which will “host” the new travelift of 400 tons, and which will be operational by autumn 2009. Work is also in progress for the development of a large breakwater, which will eventually have the possibility to offer temporary berths for up to 15-20 yachts.
The technical staff of Planaco yacht yard consists of skilful technicians, with years of experience in wood, metal and GRP work. The yard offers “within one’ s means” prices and guaranteed work covering almost all spectrum of maintenance, repair and refit work, within an ecological, modern and safe environment, guarded 24/7 by a private security company and surveillance cameras. The facilities include power (220 V – 380 V AC), water, air under pressure, as well as free wireless internet for the owner and crew.
Our slogan is “we are not only efficient, but helpful too”. We believe in our vision and so do many private owners as well as large charter companies, who entrust Planaco S.A. as their wintering base and maintenance for their yachts.
