Boats Manufactured In Greece

Here are the 2 boats i have...both of them are from Greek manufacturers and my beleif is that they are very very good taking in mind that as Greeks we make nautical camping,which means staying inside the boats for days while cruising to our beautiful islands...the first in an 8m cabin with 2x140str johnson which is also for sale and the second is a 10m 2stepped hummer hull with 2 tent cabins and separate shower/electrical WC compartment.... with 2x225 4str johnson....top speed is 47kn with full load which is about 4-4,2tonnes...

thnks mate.....as we say here in Greece, most of our ribs are for camping use..that means the deck is mostly made for the person/s to be able to "live" from a couple of days up to 15-20 days of our vacation time during August....
So, apart from the hull, the deck is capable of sleeping some people,has shower,gas for cooking,toilet etc etc...and also we have yr type of boats like COBRA,RIBEYE that are bought mainly for people who want to travel from island to island and sleep in hotels and not in boats.I don't know if you have the same mentallity......

we here may like to drive our ribs in the rough but when it comes to sleeping well that has got to be first class , after a day on the water you cannot beat a comfortable bed , good food and a good pint or more

We don't exactly get the same weather over here - and with the tides and currents you have to be pretty sure of your anchor before going to sleep!!!

I would love that lifestyle though - love Greece - especially the coast up from Marathon.

Corinth canal looks wild - would love to go through it in a RIB at full speed - would look great in a James Bond film!!!

Andre....i can asure you that after 7 years with boats...at least fo me and my wife, sleeping in the boat is better than any 1st class hotel.....ofcourse and to answer and to codprawn our islands have a lot of beaches and coasts that you have almost no fear to sleep inside.....Specially in summer we are discussing for temp of 35-44 celcius, so the night breeze is the best....and the "matresses" are for a very pleasant and relaxing sleep...
also we have a lot of places that you can through anchor,pass across the road and sleep in a nice hotel and from your balcony you can see the boat.
Personally i prefer the boat since i have anything i need....TV,radio/cd,toilet,shower and in the group i belong here in Athens (www.ofse.gr) we make a lot of travel.....
Wish the distance was smaller so, you could understand that if you live in Greece you have almost anything in a "touch" distance....
from my parking in the sea is 3min...the quicker trip is 40minutes away....
But from hearings i have our seas are not as rough as yours....so it is a hole different mentality in building boats here in Greece from there....That's way for example COBRAs' here are very very "light"....just console and sitting places....
As far as Corinth canal....sorry mate but max speed when passing is 5-6knots....and depending from boat about 60-70euros per passing....
