[Amel Yacht Owners] Marina for wintering Greece

Ann-Sofie Svanberg <kanalmamman@...>

We have spent 2 winters in Aghios Nikolaos on Crete. A very nice place and with haul out possibilities. When hard weather from the north it gets bumby in the marina, but with a thourough mooring that is not a big issue. The staff patrols the pontoons several times a day, and is happy to check your boat. There is a rather big community in the marina during the winter.

Last winter we spent in Licata. If you are spending time on the boat during the winter months, I would recommend Licata before Ragusa. Licata doesn't close down during the winter, you have only a few minutes walk to supermarket and a few more to the city center.

Hello every one;

We are looking to winter somewhere in Greece for the 2016 season, probably from November 2016 to May 2017. We will be cruising the southern Aegean and possibly Crete. We have to haul out so we would need somewhere with reliable lifting capability. Availability of local services and supplies would be a plus. We will not be on board so would prefer to have a local person/company that can look after the boat and periodically turn on the engine, generator and other systems. Therefore we would prefer to be in the water.

I would appreciate recommendations for marinas you have used or have personal knowledge to be safe and reliable to winter in. Also I would like to hear pinions on pros and cons of leaving the boat in the water or on the hard. 

Thank you
