For more than 50 years the Basimakopoulos family continues with passion and dedication the long boat building tradition of our country. Our shipyard, having built more than 380 wooden vessels of various types and sizes, many of which have been certified by Greek or foreign classification bodies, boasts that it holds one of the first places on the podium of the Greek traditional boat builders.

Despite the developments in machinery and technology the bulk of the work is still done by hand. Thus, each vessel is unique, a one of a kind piece of art. ‘’Koiladiotika’’ vessels sail throughout the Greek seas and they are considered to be points of reference to those lucky ones that came along one.

Meet The Greek Shipping Billionaires Getting Rich Off Russian Oil

Sanctions after the invasion of ukraine sent tanker values soaring, boosting the fortunes of these maritime moguls to record highs and minting at least seven new 10-figure fortunes., by giacomo tognini , forbes staff.

I n June 2022, Greece’s leading shipowners gathered for a conference at the Four Seasons resort in Vouliagmeni, a wealthy suburb south of Athens. Coming just three months after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the country’s shippers had an unorthodox take on the war roiling the global economy.

"This is a tragedy for humanity, but at the same time it creates opportunities,” said George Prokopiou , one of the world’s biggest owners of tankers. “We need to be able to take advantage of these opportunities,” added Evangelos Marinakis, the tycoon behind shipping firm Capital Maritime and Trading.

During that same panel , titled “Greek Shipping at the Forefront of Global Trade,” Prokopiou also made a bold prediction: “By the end of the year we'll see very, very good markets in all segments. I'm very optimistic. Ships will command much higher prices.”

That prediction came true, helping propel both Prokopiou, 77, and Marinakis, 56, into the billionaire ranks as the value of their ships jumped and the size of their empires expanded. Prokopiou and Marinakis, who are worth $2.6 billion and $3.6 billion, respectively, have ordered 123 new ships worth nearly $13 billion since 2022, according to VesselsValue. Prokopiou’s four shipping firms own 173 tankers including those under construction, 54 more than in 2021.

These maritime moguls are part of a new generation of Greek billionaires making waves on land and at sea. Altogether, Forbes estimates there are now at least 12 shipping billionaires in Greece, more than at any other time in history. Seven of them are making their debut in Forbes’ billionaire ranks. Altogether they are worth $32 billion—the equivalent of roughly 12% of the country’s gross domestic product.

These tycoons are the latest in a line of swashbuckling pioneers hailing back to iconic figures like Aristotle Onassis and Stavros Niarchos, who launched the global oil tanker trade after World War II and became famous for their glamorous marriages and lifestyles. This newer group has been in shipping for decades but so far has kept a lower profile. (Despite their success, none would speak to Forbes , while their representatives either declined to comment or did not respond.)

What’s new is that the value of their holdings—particularly tankers—has soared by billions of dollars over the past two years, as the war in Ukraine sent shockwaves through global commodities markets and set off a scramble for large tankers needed to ferry oil around the world. Altogether, companies owned by Greek shipping tycoons ordered new ships worth nearly $200 billion and sold 68 older ships for almost $3 billion between January 2022 and March 2024, according to VesselsValue.

"Shipowners are the biggest capitalists in this country,” says Gelina Harlaftis, a professor of maritime history and director of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies of the Foundation of Research and Technology-Hellas in Crete.

FLEETS AND FORTUNES

Forbes now counts a record 12 greek shipping billionaires. seven of them are making their debut in the three-comma-club and another, george economou, returns after a 16-year-absence..

After Russian troops invaded Ukraine in February 2022, the U.S. and Europe moved to ban seaborne imports of Russian oil and later imposed a price cap on Russian oil, designed to limit Putin’s profits while ensuring that oil would keep flowing. Many Western firms decided to quit the trade altogether, deeming it too risky. Not the Greeks, who have a history of operating at the fringes of the global economy.

While there is no evidence that any of these billionaires violated sanctions, they definitely took advantage of the situation. “If there is a chance to [do] business legally, they will exploit the opportunity,” says Ioannis Theotokas, a professor of management of shipping companies at the University of Piraeus in Greece.

Before the war, most Russian oil went to Europe. After the European ban, much of it was redirected to India and China, which meant much longer trips for tankers—and higher rates for shipowners making those trips. A typical journey from Russia’s Baltic Sea ports to the west coast of India, the most popular route for Russian oil, can generate an estimated $8 million in revenues—60% higher than the going rate in October 2023 and five times the rate in 2021.

The Greeks have directly benefited from those higher prices. Between April 2022 and February 2024, Greek firms shipped 28% of all Russian oil exports, according to an analysis from the Kyiv School of Economics’ KSE Institute, based on data from commodities intelligence firm Kpler. Firms owned by Greek moguls—George Economou’s TMS Tankers, Andreas Martinos’ Minerva Marine and Prokopiou’s Dynacom Tankers—made up three of the five largest shippers of Russian oil over that time period, with Dubai-based shell companies set up by Russia’s state-owned Sovcomflot taking the other two slots. (While the latter two were sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury in December 2023 and February this year, none of the Greek firms have been sanctioned and there is no indication they have violated any of the sanctions on Russia.) A spokesperson for Minerva Marine declined to comment, while representatives for TMS and Dynacom did not respond to questions.

“[The Greeks] are just running 30% of the Russian crude flows, but it's enough for them to basically finance a new shipbuilding spree,” says Viktor Katona, lead crude analyst at Kpler.

Tankers are now tied up in longer voyages, ramping up overall demand. That’s sparked a surge that’s sent new tanker prices up by more than 40% since 2021, according to Athens-based shipbroker Xclusiv. And aging ships that would once have been scrapped are now selling for premium prices on the secondhand market. Most of them have sold to the so-called “shadow fleet,” made up of companies registered in obscure jurisdictions, with ships that sail without Western insurance and obfuscate their location or conduct ship-to-ship transfers to trade Russian oil in violation of Western sanctions. Even fifteen-year-old tankers are now selling for more than double the going price in early 2021.

The Minerva Kalypso tanker, owned by Andreas Martinos' Minerva Marine. In April 2024, it loaded oil from the Russian port of Novorossiysk on the Black Sea.

S hipping firms have long played an outsize role in the Greek economy. Greek firms own 17% of the entire global shipping fleet—more than any other country—including 31% of the world’s oil tankers. At nearly $150 billion, it’s the most valuable fleet in the world, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and Clarksons Research. In 2022, shipping firms made up 7% of Greece's GDP and contributed $22 billion to the country’s economy, per the Union of Greek Shipowners.

It’s also a good place to do business. Under an article enshrined in Greece’s 1953 constitution, local shipowners are exempt from personal or corporate income tax on profits from their vessels. Instead, they pay a “tonnage tax” based on each ship’s cargo-carrying capacity, which applies both to ships registered in Greece and abroad—as long as the company maintains a management office in Greece. And in 2022, Athens passed a law reducing the voluntary tax on dividends and capital gains for shipping companies to 5%, from the previous 10%.

Where do those virtually tax-free profits go? Besides paying for new tankers, Greece’s shipping billionaires have plowed their cash into soccer teams, TV channels, newspapers, real estate and the quintessential billionaire purchase: yachts. Most of their firms operate out of the same southern suburbs of Athens on the Aegean coast, and they own palatial homes in the same upscale neighborhoods. New billionaire Diamantis Diamantides owns several villas next door to the Four Seasons resort in Vouliagmeni, down the road from the Armonia Residences, a collection of luxury apartments owned by George Economou, who returns to the billionaire ranks this year after 16 years missing the cut.

They compete as much on the airwaves and the soccer pitch as they do in the shipping lanes. Greece’s two most successful professional soccer teams, Olympiacos and Panathinaikos, are majority-owned by magnates Evangelos Marinakis and Giannis Alafouzos, respectively. The two men also own rival media conglomerates and TV channels, while Alafouzos’ brother Themistocles operates the nation’s largest newspapers. While the Alafouzos brothers aren’t billionaires individually, Forbes estimates they’re worth a collective $1.2 billion.

Not surprisingly, some of these tycoons have also dabbled in politics. Marinakis serves on the city council of Piraeus, a port city south of Athens, while Athanasios Martinos recently completed his term as the civil administrator of Mount Athos, an autonomous region home to some 1,780 Orthodox monks. His daughter, Georgia, served in the Greek parliament from 2012 to 2023.

As the value of their fleets skyrocketed, they’ve also gone on spending sprees outside of Greece. Marinakis, who bought 80% of English Premier League team Nottingham Forest in 2017, shelled out nearly $350 million on new players over the past two seasons and also announced a $22 million investment in Portuguese soccer team Rio Ave last November.

Economou and Prokopiou, meanwhile, have built up sprawling real estate portfolios. Prokopiou owns an estimated $90 million worth of properties including homes in Portofino, Italy and in London’s tony Mayfair neighborhood, as well as the $42 million, 349-foot megayacht Dream, fitted with two outdoor swimming pools and a helipad. Economou has an estimated $150 million empire of homes in London, Manhattan, Saint-Tropez and St. Barts, plus a $250 million art collection with works by Pablo Picasso and Kazuo Shiraga. Part of it is on display in his private museum in Athens.

Shipping in Greece tends to be a family affair. Several of Greece’s current crop of shipping barons, including Marinakis and brothers Andreas , Athanasios and Constantinos Martinos (all individual billionaires), followed in their parents’ footsteps but expanded their shipping businesses to new heights. Others like Prokopiou built dynasties from scratch but have already started passing the baton to their children: Prokopiou’s daughter Ioanna runs one of his four companies, Sea Traders, while the son of Diamantis Diamantides runs his own tanker firm.

The Astir peninsula, located south of Athens, is home to some of the priciest real estate in Greece, including properties owned by billionaires Diamantis Diamantides and George Economou.

G reek shippers have never been afraid to make money at controversial times. In the 1960s, the Vardinoyannis family—currently helmed by billionaire Vardis , aged 91—famously attempted to break a UN embargo and ship oil to the white minority regime in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) via a pipeline in Mozambique. After a standoff with the British navy, the ship departed without unloading its cargo.

Leaked documents seen by Forbes also show the extent to which at least one Greek shipper went to win contracts with Russian leaders. In December 2016, Prokopiou penned a letter to Igor Sechin , the CEO of Russia’s state-owned oil company Rosneft and one of Putin’s right-hand men. He wanted to expand his business with Moscow and had the letter hand delivered to Sechin, proposing a “mutually beneficial” deal to trade Rosneft’s oil and gas on his fleet of tankers. The letter also included a draft agreement outlining how Prokopiou’s fleet would trade Russian fossil fuels directly to India and China, bypassing the world’s largest oil traders. The letter was part of the Babakov Leaks, a trove of documents from the email account of Russian member of parliament Alexander Babakov, shared by the Ukrainian hacker collective Cyber Resistance with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and its partners, including Forbes . Representatives for Prokopiou and Rosneft did not respond to requests for comment.

More recently, in June 2020, the U.S. imposed sanctions on two ships owned by Prokopiou's Dynacom and new billionaire Constantinos Martinos’ Thenamaris for carrying Venezuelan oil. They were removed from the sanctions list less than a month later, after both firms pledged to stop trading with Venezuela.

"The Greeks control the commercial fleet," says Kpler's Katona. "And they're also very entrepreneurial. When Venezuela opened up after the sanctions [were eased in 2023], the Greek shippers were the first in."

When Russian troops invaded Ukraine in February 2022, some shipowners—such as Maria Angelicoussis , Greece’s richest person—vowed not to carry Russian oil. But for others, any caution they may have had in the weeks after the invasion soon dissipated.

“When the war started, we took a decision not to go to Russia because like everybody else, we were very emotional and we felt very distressed with what was going on,” said the chief financial officer of Alafouzos’ Okeanis Eco Tankers in an earnings call in August 2022. “But as time progressed, we realized that, first of all, a lot of our competitors and all the majors were lifting oil from Russia.”

Last November, Reuters reported that several Greek companies—including Economou’s TMS Tankers, Andreas Martinos’ Minerva Marine and Constantinos Martinos’ Thenamaris—had stopped shipping Russian oil. But according to ship tracking data from MarineTraffic analyzed by Forbes , there are at least 37 tankers owned by TMS, Minerva and Thenamaris that departed Russian ports since February or are currently en route to Russia. Trading Russian oil and oil products remains legal, as long as firms comply with the price cap of $60 per barrel of oil and separate price caps for products such as diesel and fuel oil. Spokespeople for Thenamaris and Minerva Marine declined to comment on commercial matters, while representatives for TMS did not respond to questions.

“Two years after the start of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia has amassed more than $650 billion in revenue from its export of fossil fuels—of this, $193 billion is from the sale of crude oil,” says Andrii Pozniak, a spokesperson for Ukraine’s anti-corruption agency NACP. “Greek shipowners who transported Russian oil played a significant role in this process.”

Unlike with oil, Europe hasn’t taken action to limit imports of Russian liquefied natural gas (LNG). While it’s a relatively smaller part of their business compared to oil, it’s created even more opportunities. Politico and Belgian newspaper Le Soir recently reported that Prokopiou had lobbied the European Commission in the summer of 2022 to avert a potential ban on Russian LNG. (Prokopiou's daughter, Ioanna, told Politico that she had simply asked a European Union lobbyist to help explain "EU importation rules." Representatives for Prokopiou did not respond to Forbes ’ request for comment.) When the EU announced a new sanctions package in December 2022, it included exceptions for LNG.

That meant that Prokopiou, who owns 42% of publicly traded LNG carrier firm Dynagas LNG Partners—a stake worth about $60 million—could keep shipping Russian gas to Europe. Two of its six ships are chartered to the Yamal LNG project in northern Russia, making up 43% of the company's revenues in 2023—up from 39% before the war. Much of that gas is exported to Europe.

Global LNG prices spiked to record highs in 2022 before steadying in 2023. That’s been a boon for Greek shippers: Marinakis owns 56% of publicly traded Capital Product Partners—a stake worth $500 million—which announced a $3.1 billion deal in November to order 11 new LNG carriers and jettison its fleet of container ships. A month later, he sold an 18% stake in the firm to an investment company controlled by Greek real estate and shipping billionaire Ioannis Papalekas for $160 million.

The good times won’t last forever. Eventually, the volatile tanker market will settle, putting an end to the boom that has launched so many Greek shippers into the billionaire ranks. Still, the amount of money they’ve plowed into buying new, more modern vessels—and the profits they’ve gotten from selling junk ships for top dollar and shipping Russian oil at a premium—means they’ll be in a stronger position for years to come.

As long as there’s money to be made—and the risks aren’t too high—Greek firms will likely keep selling their old tankers to shell companies tied to Russia, while making a tidy sum trading Russian oil. And when the boom ends, they’ll be ready to seize the next opportunity, armed with fleets of brand-new tankers worth billions of dollars.

"The Greek shipowners are very mercenary,” says Adi Imsirovic, a former oil trader and senior associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “When there's a lot of money involved, people will find a way."

Catamarans for Charter in Greece

Sailing Catamaran charters in Greece are a convenient way to have a larger number of guests (up to 12) on a comfortable crewed yacht charter.

Notice that the distances in Greece are quite long . Since most luxury catamarans are based in Athens (inquire for Mykonos-based  catamarans ), the ideal catamaran charter itinerary will include the Saronic Islands of Aegina and Hydra .

For a Catamaran charter in the Cyclades , especially if you are planning to visit Santorini , we recommend chartering out of Mykonos. Our brokers will find you a Mykonos-based yacht or arrange a delivery of your desired yacht to the starting location of your charter vacation. Start a chat to tell us what you’re looking for in your catamaran charter, we’re here for you 24/7!

How to charter crewed catamarans in Greece

Ideally, you will inquire about a catamaran charter 12 months in advance . WHY? The best catamarans are often fully booked long in advance and it is not unusual to see popular dates booked 2 summers ahead for a Greek Island yacht charter .

Inquiring less than 6 months ahead often means that your first choice is unavailable for charter. Additionally you might find that the yacht you want can’t make it to the port where you wish to commence your yacht charter.

This is especially important if you are planning to charter in the popular destination -the  Cyclades  (and we recommend  you fly into  Mykonos   international airport to start there). Many things have to fall into place to make a succesfull charter vaccation happen, so  inquire early!

  • Most luxury catamarans are based in Athens (marinas from Piraeus in the west to Saunio in the east).
  • Of the catamarans permanently based in the Cyclades , most have temporary availability.
  • You will also find catamarans based in the Ionian islands available for charter.

Aegina Island, Greece

Best Areas to Charter Catamarans

The best areas to charter catamarans will have small distances between destinations and calm waters. Although they are more capable of crossing oceans, catamarans are slower than motor yachts, which is why they aren’t good for long distance itineraries.

Taking a group of 2 families with young kids who have not chartered before from Athens to Santorini (because why do the additional flight to Mykonos, right?) in August with the Meltemi winds blazing is not the greatest idea for a relaxed sailing vacation. – We’re happy to provide references for people who insisted, only to regret their Indiana Jones type of vacation.

If you’re afraid there is nothing to see apart from Santorini and Mykonos in the Cyclades Islands? Let Peter show you these assorted charter locations in the Saronic Gulf in the video below…

My Greek Odyssey - Epidavros

My Greek Odyssey - Epidavros

The Saronic Gulf is perfect for first-time charterers – with 2 to 4 hours cruise between islands outside of the Meltemi winds, fantastic locations , and amazing things to do such as the Pistachios of Aegina , walking the old town of Poros or snorkeling the Sunken City of Ancient Epidaurus .

greek yacht builders

Second up are the Cyclades Islands – still perfectly doable on a 7-day crewed catamaran charter, especially if you plan on starting in the actual Cyclades instead of “ taxiing ” there from Athens . In the cyclades captaina are in a great position to account for the weather (instead of having to cross large distances) and provide a pleasurable yacht charter either hitting the hot spots – windmills of Mykonos (or it’s vibrant night clubs), the sights of the city of Thira on Santorini , the ancient Delos – or the hidden gems such as the forgotten island of Anafi .

Yacht Charter: 3 Most Common Mistakes You'll 100% Make

Is the cyclades islands a great area for a catamaran charter.

Yes and no – if planned well and with the expectation that things might change last minute dictated by the weather, a catamaran charter in the Cyclades can be a relaxing and pleasurable experience in the Aegean sea. If you’re an exact planner, and not willing to be flexible, it is wise to avoid it .

A yacht charter is subject to the elements – if the weather is bad, the port authority bans all the yachts to depart (usually just the motor yachts, but do you really want to be out there?). That happens in some areas more than in others, and it does happen more frequently in the Cyclades Islands .

We’ve had experiences where a stubborn travel agent (yes, we cooperate with travel agents on the condition we’re taken seriously) has booked activities on a rigid itinerary with total disregard for the weather conditions and its unpredictability. – Horse ride on Siros, dinner reservation in Skorpios on Mykonos, wine tasting on Santorini starting at 9 am sharp on a Saturday morning – you need Poseidon’s blessing to commit to that…

GREECE: BEST TIPS for Luxury Yacht / Catamaran Charters

A good broker and a good captain will list your preferred activities and pre-arrange them on a confirmation basis . Due to our long time in the industry, we have build relationships with many businesses, attractions, restaurants, and activity providers. We can get you to stuff you did not know existed – Would you for example like to have a private dinner in an iconic ancient ruin ? Would you like to have a famous singer show up at your birthday party at Mykonos? Say the word, and we will make it happen!

The Three Bells of Fira. One of the most recognized places in the world and an absolute bucket list material.

Advantages of chartering a crewed catamaran in Greece

  • Lower fuel consumption compared to motor yachts.
  • Lower cost, especially for catamarans under 50 ft.
  • Shallow draft – you can get quite close to secluded beaches and white sands with a catamaran charter.
  • Access to the dock – especially in high season, bigger yachts might need to stay out of the harbor and access with a dinghy.
  • Captain + stewardess still the most common crew combination (keeps the costs down), bigger – motor yacht like luxury catamarans are on the rise (with more crew).
  • Gratuity – a 10% gratuity paid after the Catamaran charter is considered completely satisfactory in Greece. Compare that to the (up to) 25% mandatory gratuity that is increasingly being demanded in escrow pre-charter in the Caribbean or the Bahamas.
  • Use of water toys and water sports – rules are more relaxed and definitely less enforced compared to France or Italy – it’s not the same if you get on a jetski in a secluded bay on Iraklia or in the overcrowded Gulf of St Tropez.

Mykonos Greece Island

Disadvantages of chartering a catamaran in Greece

  • Low speed mandating a limited itinerary or a lot of sailing hours – It is not unusual for a catamaran charter to move before sunrise to break it up. Can be mitigated by starting in the destination – Mykonos, Santorini, Lefkada (Ionian), Patmos or Ikaria (Dodecanese), Skiathos (Sporades – Mamma Mia Islands)
  • Smaller crew – used to be 2 crew members, now growing (it’s both a positive and a negative) as per your price sensitivity. Compared to the Caribbean – there are more options.
  • Vertical layout – 2 or 3 decks on a horizontally constrained area.

Catamarans vs Motor Yachts

Charter yachts are rapidly growing in size, keeping up with an ever increasing demand for the most luxurious vessel on the market. – In 2020 , the average length of a crewed catamaran was 45 feet . Where, at the end of 2023, the average size of a new catamaran charter was 67 feet .

Given a crazy expansion of the crewed catamaran fleet (demanding a whole new boat show to accommodate this segment starting in 2023 ), the catamarans are getting closer in onboard capacity to motor yachts.  If you’re looking to get a recent Lagoon 52 catamaran sailing charter with crew, inquire early.

Catamaran Elly - A great example of the intersection of motor yachts and catamarans - a recent trend starting in 2022

As mentioned ealier Power catamarans will generally have a lower fuel consumption,  with comparable deck space at the expense of speed. Catamaran charter will be able to get closer to the beach and will get to marinas easier than a huge motor yacht that had a change of itinerary and is looking for a last-minute spot on the dock (and will probably anchor out, hailing the guests from shore with a dinghy).

With the deck space being comparable in Catamaran Charter- the choice is yours – are you looking for a wider deck that’s arguably more casual for a group to sit down, or are you looking to have a bottle of something really nice served to you on the aft deck of a Ferretti motor yacht ?

Some catamarans have moved it's base from Athens to Cape Sounion (Laurio)- the southernmost cape of Attica and the Gateway to the Cyclades - an interesting option to land in Athens and still start
