Marinas & Moorings

Today there are 19 marinas with 6,661 docking berths in Greece that offer high quality services. Quite a few of these marinas have been awarded through the European Blue Flag Program.

New modern marinas, hotel ports and moorings for the safe docking of vessels are already functioning or are in the process of starting their operations, in order to meet the needs of tourists arriving in Greece by sea in the most satisfactory way and under the safest conditions.

Moorings

Apart from the berths currently provided by public or privately owned marinas, approximately 3,000 more pleasure craft can be hosted in Greek harbors. Many ports -apart from the ports of Piraeus and Thessaloniki- now have small and picturesque moorings with all suitable services and facilities. Piers and seawalls have created safe havens where tourist vessels can dock after paying the relevant port dues.

Such port facilities have been created in Mikrolímano in Piraeus, on the islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra, Spetses, in Nafplio, Gythio, Pylos, on the islands of Zakynthos, Ithaca, Kefalonia, Lefkada, Paxí, Ios, Mykonos, Patmos, Symi, Samos, Lesbos (Plomari), Chios and in other places.

Port dues

Οι Commercial harbors are supervised by local Port Authorities. Pleasure craft that use the ports of the country are obliged to pay port dues, as specified by the regulations of the competent Ministry of Mercantile Marine. Docking dues are paid to the local Port Authorities (Port Fund) and are calculated on the basis of craft category, total length of the craft in meters, registered total capacity in tons and duration of stay in the port.Supplies:

Fuel: Diesel fuel is available to pleasure craft in many Greek harbors, mainly by road tankers and supervised by the local Port Authority (Information: VHF Channel 12). Most oil companies today have an organized coastal oil station network established on the islands and along the coasts of Mainland Greece, and are thus able to cover the fuel needs of vessels in any region of the country. In addition, some of these companies have built small special tankers that transport both the fuel and the road tanker, thus creating floating vessel supply stations.

In the larger ports of the country, fuel is charged at current market prices. In more remote areas, however, a small surcharge is added in order to cover additional transportation costs.

Vessels are not allowed to use transit fuel. All vessels without exception are required to use diesel fuel, which has the natural yellowish color of diesel (colorless).

Gasoline : This is usually available from gas stations and not from pumps close to the quay.

Lubricants: Although all types of lubricants are sold in Greece, you may not find them on certain remote islands. For this reason, recreation craft on extended trips should carry supplies of the lubricants they need.

Water: As far as the supply of potable water is concerned, the marinas of the Greek National Tourist Organization levy an additional 80% charge to urban consumption costs. Water is provided on the pier or is transported by road to the ports. It is recommended that you check prices with local Port Authorities. In summer, it may be difficult to fill your tanks as some islands are short of water, so pleasure craft captains should ensure that they have adequate water reserves on board.

Other supplies -provisions - equipment: With respect to food supplies, ice, cooking gas and other goods, these can be obtained in most harbors of the country from private companies or through the organized network of the oil companies (Information from the Port Authorities/ VHF Channel 12).

Repairs Repairs of every kind and extent and relevant services are found in most Greek coastal areas and near the mainland harbors, as well as near the harbors of the larger islands. Smaller harbors and more remote islands have facilities for certain kinds of minor repair works and related services.

Please note the following regulations that are in force according to Greek Legislation:

Private pleasure craft that are either under Greek or foreign flag ARE NOT ENTITLED to tax-free delivery of equipment and supplies, such as fuel, lubricants, victuals and other goods.

Professional tourist vessels ARE ENTITLED to tax-free delivery of fuel only, through the procedure by which the special oil consumption tax is returned for the amount of fuel that can be verified as having been used for professional reasons. These vessels are not entitled to receive duty-free victuals and other provisions.

Note: Relevant legislation, which was recently amended in order to harmonize Greek Legislation with European Community policy, may be subject to change with respect to these issues.
