The luxury yacht, Glaros
“Glaros” which when translated into English means, Seagull. She is a unique traditional Greek wooden Motor Sailor. Which for many years worked as a ferry between the island of Paxos and Parga on the mainland. Glaros also worked with a diving school, taking divers to various dive locations around the island of Corfu. Built in the seventies by one of the leading boat yards of Greece. The reputable Chalkitis Brothers boat yard in Perama, near Piraeus.
Accommodation for 10 passengers
Refurbished with a gleaming wood interior, and spacious, comfortable accommodation. She is a classic motor sailing yacht providing the highest level of luxury and services combined with the latest technology. Glaros can accommodate 10 passengers in five cabins all with en-suite facilities.
All timbers used during the extensive refit have come from those countries where the timber is in abundant supply. We used no wood which came from those countries throughout the world where they destroy forests. So at least we are trying to do our bit to ease global warming.
Large Deck Areas
Glaros has several large deck areas to offer you spectacular views as you cruise around the Ionian Islands in the Mediterranean. The aft deck has a superb shaded area for dining and lounging, away from the midday sun. The forward part of the deck has a large area with comfortable cushions so you can bask in the sun.
