New mooring lines

Recently we have placed new mooring lines in the “big boat basin”, yachts up to 40 meters.
More and more mega yachts chose Messolonghi Marina as their permanent base.
To service these clients better, we have installed new 46 mm mooring lines (breaking load 40 T).

March 2014 Messolonghi Marina News letter

Subject: New boat tax
With this letter we like to inform you on the current situation according the planned new boat tax in Greece.

As it seems nothing will be charged until an official Ministerial decision is taken which will describe the procedures in detail regarding payment terms ((e-payment terms, tax authorities, port police checking and control, etc.).

Also the tax regulation seems to be in conflict with the EU rules.
Both the Greek Marina Association and the European Sailing Federation are protesting against it.

As it looks now it still will take a long time before the new tax actually will be charged.

We will keep you posted on this subject.

December 2013 Messolonghi Marina Newsletter

First of all we want to thank all our guests for having their boat in our marina. Your trust and confidence in the marina staff and management is highly appreciated. It is shown by the large number of boats and the fact that many of you have already signed annual and multi annual agreements. 2013 Was an exciting year with many changes. Since April we have a new marina board. The management team is strengthened with the appointment of Gregory Lakkas as operational manager and Mata Masoura is promoted to office manager. Erich van Ham is appointed as part-time advisor for all environmental licenses, waste management and safety issues. Dimitros Stathis and Christos Bellas have joined the marinero/guard team.

The website is upgraded and will be completed within the next weeks. One of the new web-services is the item YACHT SALES. All yachts in the marina that are for sale, can be published on this page, at no costs. Although the Greek Government wants to raise new taxes on recreational yachts, the prospects for 2014 are looking good.

Greece is still one of the most beautiful and least expensive sailing areas of Europe. We keep on trying to make your stay as nice as possible by continuously upgrading the Marina and the Marina services.

We wish you all a Happy New Year and look forward to see you back in the Marina in good health and spirit.
