Four marinas in Greece are now offering longterm berth leases for boats of 10 metres and above. Triangle Berth Brokers are marketing the leases, which are avail- able for between 17 and 20 years. All the marinas are now of a top international standard, and Gouvia in particular has made enormous progress over the past few years in improving its facilities and service. All have numerous air connections, both direct and via Athens, and are situated in the heart of some fabulous cruising grounds.

Greek berth leases for salePrices range from €16,779 for a 10m berth in Kalamata marina in the Messinian Gulf, to €50,337 for a 15metre boat in Gouvia. Zea Marina, in Athens, has 22m berths at €152,915. Berth leas- ing has been through some difficult times, but with the steep rise in the number of boats en- joying the Mediterranean, longterm contracts certainly should be considered.
