The economic woes that worry Greece do not seem to be affecting the building of new super yacht marinas
The new Ermioni Marina, south of Athens, is just one which is scheduled to open for the 2014 season.
Located on the Peloponnese Peninsula about 50NM south of Athens, Ermioni is a Herculean stone’s throw from the islands of Hydra, Dokos and Spetses and boasts one of the most beautiful cruising grounds in Greece.
A site of unparalleled natural beauty and a naturally safe harbour, the marina is set to establish a new benchmark by blending discretely with its surroundings.
The marina can be reached by road or fast ferry in less than two hours. Its location, only 20 minutes from Porto Heli, Greece’s ‘Cap Ferat’ will provide a much needed five-star facility for villa owners in the area to berth their yachts.
For Athens-based yacht owners Marina Ermioni will save the time and money otherwise spent travelling from Athens to reach these island-studded cruising grounds
The marina will have its own bars, restaurants and shops as well as a swimming pool and chandlery.
Construction is due to start within 2012 and will take approximately 18 months, with the opening date scheduled for late 2013 / early 2014.
