North Sailing is a company operating in the North Aegean Sea. The love for sailing and sea is the cause of its creation.
Our fleet consists of sailboats between 35-57 feet, monohuls and catamarans. All our boats are very well maintained and organized to meet the highest international standards.
Our goal is to provide safe and comfortable cruises to Thassos and other islands located in the North Aegean, for those who want to enjoy their holidays sailing.
Since NORTHSAILINGs beginning our goal is to invest in well preserved used or in brand new sailing boats, so that our clients can enjoy their best vacation in the less discovered region of North Aegean. After our long experience, and following the customers need we have concluded that the above can be achieved with Jeanneau models of Benetteau shipyard and Bali models of Catana shipyard. Due to our customers increasing needs we continue to invest in new boats. After 14 years in the industry we today have one of the biggest exclusively managed fleets in North Aegean.
INVEST IN A YACHT
According to the “Study regarding Maritime Tourism (yachting, cruising, coastlines)” which was published during October 2019 by the Greek Tourism Business Association, Maritime Tourism consists of section of yachting, cruising and coastlines with immediate financial impact of € 2.280 million or 1,3% of GDP with direct employment 22.500 jobs, from which 11.500 in yachting, 5.000 in cruising and 6.000 in coastlines. In adition, taking into consideration the indirect effects, the total impact on greek economy is estimated to € 5 and € 6 billions, representing 2,9%-3,5% of GDP.
As it is underlined in this study, “National Bank of Greece mentions for 2015 total expenses from tourists in maritime tourism € 503 million, excluding expenses for airlines for tourists that participate in a cruise starting from Greece or finishing in Greece.” From the above we can safely conclude that section of yachting affects the wider economy of the regions that the specific tourists visit, both the bases of embarkation/disembarkation and the destinations during their trip.
I a country like Greece, where the season has been prolonged in the specific section, reaching at least 65months of duration, investin in a yacht is one of the most profitable in our country. Greece with its 6.000 islands and islets is ranked in one of the 3 most wanted destinations in Mediterranean, with plethora of sailors returning back every year to explore new destinations.
