Guardianage

We offer this facility with safe shore-side mooring in Nidri, Lefkas for short periods while you leave your vessel to go exploring inland or return home from May until September. For the winter we can arrange yard storage &winterising of your vessel.

Valeting, laundry & provisioning

Just leave your yacht and go, or arrive for your holiday and be ready to set sail. More owners have been asking us to clean their yachts for their arrival or when they depart to make their holiday more enjoyable. We can also do your shopping, have your vessel fuelled & filled with water, moored on a quay with electricity (if available),  so that you have fully charged batteries ready to just sit back and enjoy or set sail. We’ll even make up your bunks and chill your wine!

Hauling, launching & antifouling

Instead of spending a week or two in the yard, spend it on the water and let us do the work! We can arrange for your winter storage in the Lefkas or Preveza yards, oversee the hauling & launching and prepare the bottom for the season afloat.

Guardianage

  • Vessels are kept close to the shore in Vlicho bay with two lines to the shore & at the stern on our own heavy anchors. These lines are checked regularly & constantly during bad weather. Vessels are generally moored in groups & joined by bow, stern & spring lines to each other. We use our own lines & anchors & will berth the yacht ourselves (fee applicable).
  • Vessels will be opened & checked weekly for water ingress, battery condition, damage & engines run if owner requires (a charge will be made for any time taken to mop up water from leaking windows or charging flat batteries).
  • During adverse weather conditions the vessels are regularly monitored & any necessary emergency measures carried out, such as placing extra lines, fenders or moving the vessel.
  • Owners should ensure their vessels are adequately insured while left in our care. Vessels should carry all the correct paperwork. We do not provide insurance cover.
  • While we ensure good care is taken to ensure your vessel is safe & secure we can not be held responsible for any damage or theft from your vessel. All removable items should be stowed inside the vessel.
  • Guardianage is carried out assuming your vessel to be in good seaworthy condition. We will not be held liable for damage caused due to poor condition of the vessel, failure of equipment or engines.
  • In the event of any emergency work being necessary to make your vessel secure this will be carried out as soon as possible, this may involve the owner not being contacted. The owner will be liable for the reasonable costs of such work.
  • Please label all warps & fenders with your boat name. Whilst we try to keep these with your vessel, during bad weather we may swap fenders to protect your and other vessels from damage. It also deters possible theft.
  • Unless you have asked us to put equipment away please ensure everything removable apart from fenders & warps are stored away.
